Off to Georgia. The Country. by Miriam Schaer

Along with Clifton Meador and Melissa Potter, I am off to the Republic of Georgia, for our project Crafting Women's Stories: Lives in Georgian Felt. With funding from Soros Arts and Culture Foundation, and in partnership with the Women's Fund of Georgia, we will be running workshops to make artist books from felt based on family stories. Stay tuned! I will post as often as possible-as our internet access maybe spotty at best!
