for the presence of nymphs  is a collaborative artwork created through an educational embroidery workshop with a focus on the Lily-of-the-Valley facilitated by artist Sarah Zanchetta in partnership with curator Paige Lauren for her exhibition Craft(y) Revival. Each embroidered square of this piece was sewn with care by a workshop participant. We are thankful for each participant’s curiosity about the land we live upon and openness to share, learn, and try new things. Without them this artwork would not have been possible.
