Stop by the center's gift shop to see a special display of local artist Amber Coppings' textile designs.
Hand- and machine- sewn applique details are art-inspired, geometric and are handcut from pieces of organic cottons, bamboo rayons and cotton jerseys that are hand-dyed with shibori techniques or digitally designed by Amber Coppings in her Lawrenceville studio. This allows for the most artistic expression and enhances the handmade nature of each individual piece. Other items being featured are hand-dyed infinity scarves, lightweight "Suzi" Hoodie Cape Vests and sumptuous handbraided organic cotton belts with vintage buckles.
