I am so delighted to have been selected to participate in the Haystack Open Studio Residency taking place May 28 to June 19, 2023 in Deer Isle, Maine. As an endowed program, there is no cost to attend.
Haystack’s Open Studio Residency fosters a dynamic exchange of ideas among peers and provides two weeks of studio time and an opportunity to work in a community of makers. The program supports approximately fifty participants—from the craft field and other creative disciplines—who have uninterrupted time to work in six studios (ceramics, blacksmithing, fiber, graphics, metals, and wood) to develop ideas and experiment in various media. Participants can choose to work in one particular studio or move among them depending on the nature of their work. All of the studios are staffed by technicians who can assist with projects.
While I am at Haystack, I will develop ideas around mokuhanga printmaking and also, experiment in Haystack’s Fab Lab with digital options for carving surfaces for printing.
I am so excited for this opportunity!
