Announcement    Dharma Collective is a fiber art and design studio, home to Crystal Jenkins, Janet Rita, and Therese Yvonne Boucher (aka Terry B.). We are a three generation family collective of makers who work in fiber, metals, and sculpture. We are New Englanders of craggy seashore descent whose ancestors didn't second-guess their encounters with the mystical and magical. Collectively we have been artists for over 95 years, working within the devastatingly wonderful area of fine artisan craft. We are still learning and will forever be uplifted by sharing. We consider it an honor to have our work find its home in the homes of others. The goal of this Collective is to become a venue supporting elderly and infirm fine artisans by selling their works and providing community involvement and inclusion. Our project for 2014 is to create a line of fine woven cotton scarves, textiles, and rugs using Terry B.'s needlework fiber paintings. We are soaked deeply in the spirit of the land we love and the joy and creativity a simple life brings.
