Maya Rose Weiss was the SNAG award recipient at the Peter’s Valley Craft Fair in September. Maya is the designer of Yayaand Jewelry. She began experimenting with weaving, knitting, crocheting and braiding, while growing up in New York State. She has always been captivated by the natural world, and deeply inspired by the alchemy of fibers, intention and the human hand. Drawn to those traditions handed down from mother to daughter, over the course of generations, she seeks to expose the reverence and mystery embedded in hand-made, intuitive forms woven around empty space. She graduated from Pratt Institute in 2018.
