Beth Cramer

American Writer, Editor & Director

Beth Cramer came to Studio Faire to work on the second draft of her second novel, still not knowing how this story would end. Her first novel is a memoir about confronting a diagnosis of stage 4 ovarian cancer. In ‘Why Didn’t I Notice Her Before?’ she documents her experience as a mother, wife, sister and daughter through her diagnosis. Open, honest and witty! During her two week residency Beth found the ending she was looking for.

Lene Helmer Nielsen

Danish Textile Artist & Weaver

Lene Helmer Nielsen spent four weeks at Studio Faire experiencing the temperature sinking from over 30 degrees to the low 20s. She hired a bike and cycled the streets, drawing inspiration from the patterns and colours of the old buildings, their roofs, their doors and the streets they sat on. This fed directly into her beautiful embroidery works on paper, created with watercolour, tulle fabric and linen threads.
