Last year I was fortunate to go to the Republic of Georgia twice, working with Clifton Meador and Melissa Potter, my friends and colleagues at Columbia College Chicago. In January we worked with women's groups to make artist books from felt-a local craft heritage. In June, I returned with Melissa to work more closely with Women's Fund in Georgia. Please join us on January 14, at 11.30 for lunch and an in depth look at craft and women's empowerment.
