Students From Afar...and Near

One of the best things about an art school is one never knows where our students will come from...from right down the street to halfway around the world. This year we have an exceptionally unique group in one fiber class starting later this month. We will have a student from Israel and one from Kazakstan as well as a group of local, very talented fiber artists.  This fellow, picutred above, is not in a workshop but we think this photo reflects the diversity that flows through our doors and community!  If you think you know who this Ghandi wanna be is...send us your best guess.
