Wolverine Farm Publishing and Wolverine Farm Publick House strive to be valuable resources for local makers of all kinds. In order to better serve the maker and artist community and to encourage individual artists and makers to interact with one another and build a strong network, we present the Maker in Residence (MIR) program. Every three months we select a local maker who agrees to be present and in good maker form at the Publick House throughout the term, and to perform a free, public, in-house event or workshop.


2024 Makers In Residence

WINTER (January-March) Sonya Richards

“I am Sonya Richards, and I am a Dutch artist currently living in Fort Collins, CO. Prior to CO I spent fourteen years in Portland, OR, where I worked at a print shop, and ran an art supply store and teaching space. With a love for traditional craft skills, my work embraces color and texture with a contemporary twist. I work in many different mediums: book arts, as well as fiber arts, print, and illustration.

With over fifteen years of teaching experience I am most passionate about making connections, sharing ideas, and ways to create, both old and new.”

Sonya Richards has a degree in Studio Arts from the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague, and teaches creative workshops around town. 

Find Sonya at the Publick House throughout the season and at the Residency Showcase sometime around the equinox.
