Jennie Maydew, a recent Fibers graduate, has been named one of the 2016 Windgate Fellows. The Windgate Fellowship Award is one of the most prestigious and sought-after awards for emerging craft artists in the United States.

According to Jennie’s proposal, ‘This award will support the cultivation of a strong, professional body of work positioned between the dynamic nature of contemporary textile art and the slow craft of harvesting, collecting, and preparing natural dyes.’
