The First Fabric Sample for Casting!
First off, thank you for being a part of this project! We still have a ways to go to get this funded, so this is the perfect time to share this project with someone in your life who might never come across this project, and who will be grateful for letting them know! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2135210356/the-aspen-adventure-casting-lace-sculpture
And now...I do believe this project is starting to glow...
... in the right kind of light.
I'll be making fabric samples for testing at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center. Take a look at the first one and see which lace work this was inspired by!
Again, my humblest gratitude for letting this project into your life. With your help, we will make this happen!
