Women’s Studio Workshop Residency

Last month I attended the Women’s Studio Workshop Residency in Rosendale New York. I was working in the papermaking studio while I was there. I really enjoyed hiking in the area especially on the Rail Trail. While I was there I made a lot of paper working with maps and blue jeans. I got to try the vacuum table for the first time which was very exciting for my practice. I would highly recommend this residency to all the artists out there!
