I graduated in may from Massachusetts College of Art and Design with a BFA in 3D Fine Arts with a concentration in Fibers. I’m taking a temporary departure from my usual wednesday Etsy Friends Feature to bring you an introduction to the people and the places that have been a huge part of my life for the past 4 years. Here is what it looks like to b a fibers major: (If you are one of the people in these pictures and you are thinking “hey…!” then the answer is yes, I took these from your facebook haha)
