I really enjoyed holding a creative space at the Black Arts Festival in The Deuces neighborhood of St Petersburg, FL. With perfect weather and support from NOMAD Studios, participants created small dolls in an open studio environment at no charge. A pot holder weaving station was also available. The interest from the community was immediate and a small line formed early in the morning and didn’t wane until the festival closed for the day. I had so much fun creating along side the participants and supporting them in very open ended making.
