In this video you’ll hear from Contemporary Craft Executive Director Rachel Rearick, and Knotzland’s Founder, Nisha Blackwell, for a conversation focused on their exclusive product line that is at Contemporary Craft – inclusive of a sneak peek! The discussion was moderated by podcaster extraordinaire, Kahmeela Adams of RuggedAngel.
The Rockwell line is a collection of handmade bowties and lavallières that will premiere at Contemporary Craft’s annual fundraiser, Out of Hand, on April 9. What makes this work unique is that all of the fabric for the collection was hand printed by Rachel, and then reimagined and turned into a series of wearable artwork, by Nisha and her creative team. You’ll learn how Rachel and Nisha came to know one another, hear how this project came to life, get insight into artist practice, and learn what’s at the top of each of their playlists.
