A Big Warm Welcome to Jesse Harrod, New Fibers and Material Studies Department Head

Author: Ajay Leister
Jesse Herrod's work entitled Late Bloomers

The Fibers and Material Studies Program welcomes Jesse Harrod as Department Head! Originally from Toronto, Jesse has an MFA from the department of Material Studies from the School of The Art Institute of Chicago and a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University.
She has been writing and making work that employs traditional and contemporary craft and sculptural practices with a focus on craft as "other" and how this pertains to queer theory as well as second and third wave feminism. Jesse is a fresh breath of Canadian air and we are thrilled to be working with her.
