Fridays in RVA

I finally participated in First Friday's a couple of weeks ago, and it was blast! I've truly missed the energy of Richmond, especially during the art walks. Rupa of Markets on Monroe has started something great in inviting makers to showcase their craft. I'm sure I'll participate again! 

Check out the photos below: 

Looking forward to the next event ! 

Trunk Show at Quirk Gallery

This weekend I had the pleasure to spend the day at Quirk Gallery, in Richmond VA, with a table full of lovely ladies. Below are some of the images from the event!

Thanks so much Quirk for having me and I can't wait to see you guys! 

Site the Source !

Quiet often I'm asked, " Where do you get your wool?". And, while the answer to that question can be a number of places, my main and current source is Paradise Fibers. I discovered this company early this year while working in Doha, Qatar. What I like about this place is that it's located in the US, so I don't have to worry about international shipping, and they sell to individuals. Which may sound like a weird bonus, but quiet a few companies only sell whole sale and only to larger businesses and institutions. 

I've purchased several different kinds of wool and I haven't had any problems yet! So if you're in need of some wool, or any other fiber materials, check em out! 

Inside the Studio | MASS MoCA Residency

As I'm walking into the last week of my residency, I had to make sure I officially share what's been going on in my studio ! There's a total fiber party happening in my little corner over here. Lots of little friends, and a big one in the works as well! 

A mask I finally began working on! It's completely hollow, made from a chicken wire armature and merino wool. I've used the wet felting process to make larger sheets to then cover the armature.

It's hard resisting the urge to try this thing on!

These ladies are patiently waiting to get the rest of their body parts.
