22 Mar April Maker of the Month: Aleks Slocum
When most of us hear the word “maker”, we tend to think of woodworkers, blacksmiths, or other jobs involving sweat, grit, and dirty hands. While sewing certainly doesn’t conjure up such images, it is very much a creative endeavor with a product that can be held in two hands. Aleks Slocum of Aleks Handmade is every bit designer, seamstress, and maker of toys and dolls. As our April Maker of the Month, her work will be on display in our gift shop all April long. Plus, she’ll be here to join in the festivities of our First Friday opening reception where she will demonstrate some of her skills.
We had a chance to learn a little more about Aleks and her craft recently – keep reading!
Alek’s work will be on display in our gift shop through the end of April – come in and marvel at her sweet creations during our normal gallery hours: Wednesday – Friday from noon – 5pm and Saturday from 10am – 5pm.
