“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.” - Edith Sitwell.
I have clear memories of my mother sitting in her rocker besides her kitchen fireplace crocheting a baby blanket for the next new arrival. Of my dad lovingly creating a piece of furniture in his workshop. I come from a family of makers. People who appreciate the value of a thing well made by hand.
The WARMTH show honors the work of 6 artists who also appreciate the beauty and value of handmade. Join us for the Nov and Dec Cheyenne First Friday Artwalks where you can meet the artists, purchase handmade gifts and enjoy a warm drink and homemade treats. See you there!

Life Ring workshops have been a wonderful way for me and my students to connect with people and stories through textiles. October 7th is the next Cheyenne Artwalk and I will be showing not only my Life Rings but some of my student's Rings as well. I'm looking forward to seeing the Rings again and reconnecting with students. Later in the month are two workshops scheduled at my studio. If the dates, place and times work for you I would love to have you join. The workshop is ALWAYS a special time for students to remember people and places from their past.
If you are a former Life Ring student of mine and would like your Life Ring in the exhibition please contact me at email@example.com
Georgia Rowswell is a fiber and mixed media artist and part of the Blue Door Arts duo.
