This workshop was excellent. The content was extremely helpful. I learned a lot and now feel confident to continue building my own website. — Participant from Artist Trust’s last website building program

Lydia Boss is an interdisciplinary artist whose work investigates themes of identity, time, and nature through a feminist, millennial lens. While utilizing a variety of materials including glass, metal, paper, and photographs, surfaces and experiences are manipulated through her works. Much of Boss’ work engages with the seen and the unseen, often exploring landscapes that are both physical and metaphorical.

She graduated with a BFA from Bowling Green State University in 2012 and has studied at the International Glass School in Novy Bor, Czech Republic and Pilchuck Glass School. Boss has been a resident artist at The Museum of Glass and Pilchuck Glass School and is the recent recipient of the John and Mary Shirley Scholarship award from Pratt Fine Arts Center. Boss has exhibited her work internationally and has a diverse professional background in the arts rooted in teaching, curating, creative programming. Boss lives and works in Seattle, Washington

Access to the first floor of the house (where the workshop takes place) requires going up a short driveway and seven steps with a handrail. The bathroom is on the second floor of the house, up one flight of stairs, with a handrail. We are exploring options for increasing accessibility at Wa Na Wari.
