How did you learn your craft?
My father has pursued his curiosity appetite from online, books, and other craftsmen. It is exciting, he says how easy it is to learn if you put forth the effort. Fibers has been the most familiar medium for me, traditional sewing has been passed down through my family of Italian immigrants who were seamstresses and tailors. Experimentation, breaking the rules–sewing with plastics, paper, turning garbage into something functional truly fuels my expression and confidence. The less you have the more creative you are forced to be.
