Series 4: Professional Files, 1950s-2011
1.1 linear feet
Box 10-11, 22

Material concerning Bob Stocksdale's and Kay Sekimachi's activities as a wood turner and textile artist respectively are found within this series. Generally, files may include correspondence, financial documentation and agreements, proposals, and printed material and concern lectures, conferences with professional organizations, awards received, oral history interviews, and writings by others.
Also found are documents relating to the technique, process, and raw material purchase of weaving. These files include correspondence from textile companies such as Joynell and Kroll which described and provided samples and sourcing for Sekimachi. Her techniques, process, and design are found through notebooks, perhaps from a school class, giving outlines and instruction on basic weaving and examples of design.
Raw material found in this series is likely to be study samples rather than Kay's original designs which are found in Series 11.
