About the Hawaii Artist Collaboration
One of the goals of the collaboration event is to encourage the participating artists to venture outside their normal areas of expertise. According to the event’s co-founder Tai Lake (Master Woodworker), the true benefit of the collaborative process is the friendships and cross-pollination that the artists share and then take back to their communities.
He says, “The Hawaii Artist Collaboration connects artists from all around the world who are masters of their craft and who are into sharing their experiences to help others get inspired and on their way. Once again this year, jewelers, blacksmiths, woodworkers, painters, sculptors, and more are all coming together to create works that no one person could imagine alone.”
