Cathy Callahan is a jewelry designer and textile artist based in Los Angeles. Callahan is heavily influenced by the work of textile artists from the 1960′s and 1970′s, such as Anni Albers, Sheila Hicks, and Clare Zeisler. In anticipation of her upcoming workshop this Sunday, we asked Cathy to share some inspiration images from her vast archive.
