O’Connor Scholarship

Linda O’Connor Scholarship

Linda O’Connor was a wonderful part of the Workshop for many years. She was a respected fiber artist participating in shows internationally and her work is included in many fine art collections here and abroad. Her passion for the arts was reflected in the many generations of kids she taught through the Helderberg Workshop.

In past years, she conducted classes that taught children to sew teddy bears and stitch dolls that became cherished possessions of many students.

To honor Linda, a scholarship will be given for a one week class in one of our folk arts classes.

If you know a child between the grades of 3 and 12 interested in folk arts, please apply by writing a short essay (or even submit an essay written by a child) about how your child, or a child you know, could benefit from a class like the ones Linda taught.
