Word and Image Gallery Exhibit Opening – Hannah Van Arsdale
October 3 @ 3:00 pm - October 30 @ 5:00 pm
Opening Reception: October 3 from 3 – 5 pm
Hannah Van Arsdale is the owner, designer, and maker at Blackbird Leatherworks. She began the business in April, 2010, while living in Portland, Oregon. All of the designs, from feather earrings to leather wallets and leather bags, are inspired by Hannah’s love of medieval design, all things fae and fantasy, and Nature. Many of the bag designs are named for places and artifacts from Nantucket Island, where Hannah is from. She also takes inspiration from the Norwegian and Danish languages and landscapes, and the beautiful land and skies surrounding her home and workshop in East Meredith, New York. Every bag, pouch, wallet, and pair of earrings is one of a kind and made using hand tools. Each rivet is hammered by hand on a retired farrier’s anvil. Hannah credits her incredible family, friends, and partner with her business’ continued growth and success.
