Meet Renza Wallace
Position: Have been on the board of the Museum of Anthropology and taught Spanish in the Portals of Discovery program at Reynolda House Museum of American Art
Previous Artisans’ Fairs: two
What she likes best about the Fair: Promotes creativity in the community
Her products: Textiles in Alpaca. I like to work with pre-Columbian designs and like to innovate garments into more useful pieces. I get the material from the source in Peru up in the Andes mountains.
A little inspiration: I have always enjoyed working with materials: colors, textures, designs and the way they feel.
