So I have been intending to write a blog post about my former student, Emily Wohlscheid, for as long as I have had this blog. I had Emily in multiple classes at Adrian College, a million years ago. I can't remember if I tortured her in Drawing and 2-D, but I know we shared a couple of semesters in Printmaking and one in Fibers. And Fibers was just her thing. I wished I had had more experience to share with her at that time, and I wished the college had had more classes for her to take. But...she has found her own way and is making a business of it. I am so proud of her. She had way more courage than I did as a recent grad...developing her own line of jewelry and yarns and marketing it through art fairs. She has six fairs scheduled in 2016 in the Midwest; I wish she would get one closer to me! Emily was the one person I got in touch with about show prep once I got into RISDCraft. Her best piece of advice "always bring an extra pair of scissors." Please check out her website, Bricolage Studios and her shop on BigCartel.com. I have included a couple of my favorite of her pieces below.
