Erika Lynne Hanson has been an artist-in-residence at the Icelandic Textile Center and Alaska's Wrangell Mountains Center. Now the textile artist is in the midst of a six-month Scottsdale Creates residency at the Noriega Stable Livery in Old Town Scottsdale.
The Scottsdale Creates residency program is awarded by Scottsdale Public Art to promote interaction between artists and the community. Hanson, an assistant professor of fibers and socially engaged practices at Arizona State University, will focus on textiles and the landscape during her residency, offering a workshop on crochet, stitching and creating natural dyes, along with discussions of community, art, collaboration and history.
