I’m happy to be participating in this year’s revival of the annual Dumbo Open Studios.
The event will be held on May 13 and 14th this year, a big change from the fall dates used in past years. The event website lists over 100 artists and at least eight of those are right here in the same building as my own space. Come see what the studio is like in the spring!

Scott Bodenner is a gifted textile designer, polymath, and friend. He trained as a hand weaver, with a degree from RISD and early on-the-job experience with a German textile mill.
