Meet Sophia - Studio Monitor & Instructor

Sophia joined the team during the pandemic as we started planning our in-person workshops and studio time again.

Rocío joined gather here in February 2020. She had only just completed training when we made the decision to temporarily shutdown. In the summer of 2020, Rocío returned to her part-time position which was quite a bit different from that first month of working at gather here. She is a talented Mexican embroidery artisan now residing in Camberville. When did you start making things? As long as I can remember, I enjoyed making things. I started sewing garments and crocheting hats for my dolls. I devoted some of my early time practicing oil painting but now I am back to...
