March Artisan of the Month: Laurie Gundersen - Appalachian Piecework
Sunday March 17, 2019, 1-3 pm
There are few artists that can hold their own in more than one medium; Laurie Gundersen is one of them - and a tour de force at that! She is a spinner of wool, a dyer of garments, weaver, basket maker, hooker of rugs... and the list goes on. Laurie creatively utilizes making folk art from scrap, blending contemporary design with traditional techniques.
We are pleased to have Laurie as our March Artisan of the Month. She will demonstrate her craft on Sunday, March 17, 1-3 pmat the Barn Swallow!
"I think of wood as a textile, a rather hard one that can lend itself to so many aspects of our lives. From the buildings we live in and the furniture we keep to the vessels and accessories that make our lives aesthetically pleasing and simply easier.My hands want wood..."
