Coordinator, Artisan's Row, Gulf Wars 2007

We are looking for folks who:
- Want to showcase their arts - have a place to work on a "major" project
where folks will drop by and see/discuss what you are doing - and maybe even
give it a try!
- Want to teach others - at any level - critical aspects of their art(s) in
small intimate groupings (of 4-10), in non-traditional class situations (4
hour blocks, 2 hours per day over several days, etc.)
- Whose art has a lot of equipment/stuff that is a pain to haul around -
Artisans Row fosters "Art areas"/workshops where equipment can be set up
and/or stored for several days or all week.
- Want to explore cross-discipline or "start to finish" art projects - such
as creating a knit hat from raw wool using a drop spindle made on site.
- Want an opportunity to explore "leadership in the arts." We have area
leaders in Textiles - dry, Textiles - wet, and Pottery. We'd love to have
any of these areas this year: Woodshop (carving, burning, joining, etc.),
metal casting, jewelry making, glass bead work, puppetry, Culinary arts,
fine arts, costuming, etc. Interested in putting together an area? Let us
