CraftSanity Podcast Episode #131 – A conversation with Ambrose founder Adam Weiler

IMG_2111

A summer camp romance and a $5,000 grant have given arts education a boost on the lakeshore where a small business is providing opportunities for kids to express themselves creatively.

This is what happens when cupid and a creative guy named Adam Weiler cross paths with a lovely lady on a basketball court. But more about that later. 

IMG_2127As the founder and director of Ambrose, the Holland, Michigan based screen printing and design business with a commitment to educating kids about the arts, Adam, 32, and his team of collaborators and volunteers are doing what they can to build community and inspire young people in West Michigan to achieve their artistic potential through events like cardboard regattas, weekly after school programs and summer art camps.

But Ambrose might never have started had it not been for a lakeshore love connection. 

Check out my column in Home section of the June 22 edition of The Grand Rapids Press and MLive.com to read the rest of the story. Or, better yet, listen to Adam tell the story himself on CraftSanity episode #131.
