The pursuit of knowledge and skill is a journey, never a destination.

This page is dedicated to sharing elements of the journey that may be useful on your own.  It also offers ways to connect with Laura and her work firsthand.

Drill further into the rabbit holes shared in the blog, find helpful resources, discover my studio’s home, and more.  I will continue to add to this page as new resources arise.

Enjoy!

 

Where Can I Find Erindale Tapestry Studio and Laura’s Art?

Laura’s Studio Yurt (located on the family’s historic farm east of Hayward, WI) is not typically open to the public, but you can make an appointment for a studio visit. [Currently, this offering is restricted due to COVID-19,so please see the virtual studio tour here]

Official Gallery:  Farmstead Creamery & Cafe offers the widest array of Erindale Tapestry Studio art on display and for sale.  Farmstead is open Tuesday-Sunday all year, and Laura is often there, so you can meet the artist.  [Currently, due to COVID-19, there is no public access to Farmstead’s gallery space.  You can still find Laura’s displayed work here]

Fiber Loft:  Located in the upstairs of Farmstead Creamery, this is the headquarters for wool and roving from the farm’s sheep, supplies, inspiration, project starters, and more.  This is also the home of Laura’s new Zoom teaching space.  You can learn about that transformation one this post.

Duluth Folk School:  With a special emphasis on needle felted critters and kits, Laura’s work can be found on consignment on the main floor.  Laura also offers classes and concerts [on hold due to COVID-19, watch for updates] here seasonally, so keep a finger on their events calendar.more punching progress

North House Folk School:  With fiber arts works on consignment in the school shop (Yellow House) and an ever-changing litany of Zoom classes, Laura’s partnership with this landmark folk school in Grand Marais, MN is connecting with makers and creatives across the country and in Canada.  Watch her instructor’s page for upcoming offerings.
