Around the State / Testimonial: New Mexico Silk Art Escapes with Sandy Hopper
“Sandy is a wonderful teacher as well as a gracious host. I admire her skills as an artisan and found that she was willing to share her knowledge with me easily and readily. It was beneficial for me to learn her less-toxic methods of silk painting and I was able to sample a variety of techniques in her two day workshop. She combines the gift of ‘welcoming’ along with her silk painting skills to create a blend of education and enjoyment while visiting her scenic studio on Elephant Butte Lake. I also resonated with her zen-like approach to working on silk. I recommend Sandy as a teacher, and would like to learn more from her in the future.”
