news from the studio

We are in the last month of production of The Lighthouse and it is all hands on deck! We have over 100 feet of woven wool, which is only one component of the multi-layered sculpture. There is also felting, silk, over 60 feet of 3-inch thick rope, steel and determination.
The other exciting news is that we have raised almost $4000 in our fundraising efforts. With the help of family, old and now new friends, momentum is building and the goal feels within reach. My most heartfelt thanks for those who have helped by donating, spreading the news, and sending encouragement. 

Sarah Cormier and Gina Shvartsman manage the stairs! We needed to take the wool outside to measure and the freight elevator is on vacation this month. (Sarah is a Canadian theatre artist who has just begun a new phase of research at Double Edge Theatre through the support of the Ontario Arts Council.)

Over 100 feet! Just 20 more to go on this part.
