Talking with Arline Fisch

Talking with Arline Fisch

Today I talk with Ms. Arline Fisch.

Ms. Fisch learned to sew and weave from her mother and fell hard for the color red. Growing up in New York, she studied at Skidmore College, receiving her B.S. in Art. Arline Fisch is best known for her crocheted wire works. We talked about her love of “the dramatic” and how it effects her work. Thank you Arline for your generous sharing!

Also, the latest news here in the studio, and upcoming plans here at CRAFTCAST.
