Judy McDowell: Experience Kazakhstan

Wednesday, July 21, 7:30 - 9:00 PM
Location: AmericInn

In 2009, Feltmaker Judy McDowell and Designer Laurie Jacobi were invited by the US State Department to travel to Kazakhstan to provide instruction in feltmaking and design to Kazak artisans. As part of the program titled "Revitilizing Crafts in Kazakhstan," Judy and Laurie taught workshops in two cities in this Central Asian country focusing on design principles, new felting techniques, and marketing of handcrafts. Sponsored by Chevron and the Eurasian Foundation, the purpose of this economic development program is to strengthen the work of artists throughout the country. This slide show will introduce you to the people, traditions and history of Kazakhstan as well as the importance of this work in women's lives.
