artist bio

Kasia Drake-Hames has been teaching art classes to adults and youth in a variety of community-based settings for 10 years. Kasia specializes in teaching fiber art techniques and paper crafts, particularly traditional Polish paper crafts, which she learned early in life from her grandmother, folk artist Ryszarda Klim. She holds a BFA degree in Fiber and a Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management from UW-Milwaukee, and is an alumnus of the Public Allies program. Kasia exhibits her work regionally and has created two commissioned temporary public art installations for IN:SITE Milwaukee. She creates original hand-painted silk scarves and Polish paper crafts with a contemporary twist, and holds monthly Craftea events (all-ages craft classes held in local coffee shops).
