Supporting Local Woman Artisans
Connecting and collaborating with the community is important to BWSS My Sister’s Closet. Our actions require a community response, participation, and action involving men, women, elders, youth, businesses, and groups.
Here are some of our recent collaborations:
Diane Wood, a local activist and artisan who specializes in unique cards, dolls, and buttons.
Farah Larki, a local artisan who creates upcycled handbags and foot covers.
Laura Harrison, a local pottery designer who creates a variety of unique pieces.
Setareh Bateni, a Vancouver-based jewellery designer creating hand-crafted collections to portray romance and tradition in a modern setting.
Anisa Mottahed, the creator of Lacy Tomboy, a line of handcrafted jewelery made in Vancouver.
Sara L’estrange, using ink art to depict her journey from escaping abuse to building a life of safety, personal power, and freedom.
Melanie Bronwen Cookson, the creator of Sovka (“little owl” in Polish) Arts & Accessories that integrates chance, punk rock, contemporary and traditional First Nations art and earth elements.
