As a designer, she is focused on connecting people with nature, each other, and bringing people together through the outdoors by making nature a more inclusive and welcoming place for all to benefit.  “l am working on creating treasures out of my scraps and salvaging from my neighbors who were getting rid of some massive cherry burls. In the works: a brush, some lamps, a skate deck, and more!”

Through her research, she explores ways to create ethical and sustainable models for clothing production. Through her studio practice, Ophir investigates the meaning of wearable objects and value creation using a variety of crafts.  “As a non-American, mending people’s clothes is a way for me to deal with living in the land of opportunities and capitalism. When adding my hand, my time, and my intention into any simple, daily, common object, I give it meaning.”

  AMELIA BAUERLY  MANAGING DIRECTOR  Amelia is a UX Designer living and working in North Portland. As a designer, she’s interested in using participatory design methods to tackle issues of equity in education.  “I’m always overwhelmed by the amount of waste my household produces.
