Introducing our May 20232 Grantee:
Baltimore Community Weaving Studio

Baltimore Community Weaving Studio, co-founded by Ọmọlará Williams McCallister and Najee Haynes-Follins, is dedicated to creating a space where individuals can learn to weave, regardless of their identity, ability to pay, or access to materials. Recognizing that craft skills can be financially inaccessible, the "Weave Where You Are: Foraged Basket Making" workshop was created, where participants are provided the tools and instruction necessary to learn how to forage for plants and process them in order to create baskets.

Tour de Force provides support to artists and educators who are working to enrich and inspire the DMV community. We award monthly microgrants for artistic ideas that yield educational and/or social impact. We know that art has the power to excite, educate, and open doors, and we believe in helping to provide resources that will make these opportunities accessible. We use art to foster connections, enrich our community, and infuse our environment with beauty.
