29: Artist & Textile Designer Dana Haim
Oct 20 15
The magic of nature, losing our sense of time, remembering to be grateful, getting into an exercise groove, and the joy of making pom poms!
In this episode, I talk to artist and textile designer Dana Haim, whose mission is to spark joy through the creation of ethical, hand-made goods. She achieves this and then some through her instructional workshops across the U.S. and strategic partnerships with local organizations in Mexico and Colombia (where her family is from), which allow her to weave social and environmental consciousness into her craft.
Dana received her BA in textile design from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and her MA in design for Textile Futures from Central Saint Martins in London.
