Meet the Broad Squad
While each of us have a committed practice and a dedicated workspace, we collectively made the decision to unite under one roof for three purposes: to hold each other accountable to our work, to challenge each other’s practices to grow, and to work together to share and promote that mission for others. We have a broad range of talents and work in many mediums.
When Ellen returned from an organic produce farm in Hawaii in 2014, she turned to weaving as a new creative outlet and pursued it for 3 years before making it her full-time job.
When not teaching art at a local public school, Hallie spends her time packing as much life as possible into basic everyday objects.
Kara is a mostly self-taught potter, with early instruction from a high school art class, a hobby exploration in 2011, and a lifetime of creative curiosity.
Recalling the comfort Kylee felt from her silk trimmed blanket as a baby, she utilized her passion for self-expression and color theory to create a brand of silk products that shine light on the issues women face in the workplace.
Our studio is a 1600 square foot open floor plan at Springdale General in East Austin! We split the space between our five resident artists and have a community workshop area, private bathroom, and kitchenette. On a day-to-day basis, our studio is a closed working space with retail by appointment, but we open our space to the public for events, pop-ups, and our wide array of craft-based workshops, which can all be viewed on our workshops and events pages!
