A place for learning

Spindleworks

This summer, we are lucky to have two student interns, who are not only learning from us, but with us. Penelope Lusk of Bowdoin College and Alex Jacksons of the University of Maine, Augusta share a quiet grace. With different goals, and at different stages of their education, they are both intuitive, and have humbly but powerfully become part of the Spindleworks community. As well as helping around the studios, Penelope and Alex are taking time to get to know the artists; listen to stories, join in activities, and learn the artists’ different communication, learning and creative styles. Penelope is spearheading an exciting project, working with dedicated volunteer Anne Miller to develop a survey to administer to the artists which will allow us to gather not only qualitative information but also quantitative data to help with our grant efforts, and ongoing efforts to provide the best supports we can.
