Highlights of Sankofa's Open Studio, November 22nd!
Sankofa Studio held our first Open Studio at Passageways Artist Studios on Sunday, November 22nd in Riverdale Park, Maryland. It was a wonderful occasion to show off our latest dolls and meet collectors in person. We even had a surprise visit from one of my favorite doll artists, Gwendolyn Aqui and her husband.
As a new member of Passagways Studios I was surprised at the number of collectors who came through. Some of which never looked at the art of dolls from the same perspective as 2 D art forms.
We served refreshments as people marveled at the lovely pins, dolls and wall hangings that were displayed in the studio. Also, we got several sales to boot.
I wish to thank everyone who attended who made the event special!
I am an emerging self taught doll artist who is learning how to improve my craft. I started doll making 3 years ago and stopped due to entrepreneurial pursuits. Now with the help of my mentor Francine Haskins, I am beginning the craft again with much more vigor and interest. Please share this journey with me.
