Welcome.

Hi. My name is Sydney Switzer, and I am an artist and Jewish educator travelling the world and telling stories. I'm originally from Calgary, Canada, but am now based in Glasgow, Scotland, where I work with the local Jewish community.

 

I use photography, textiles and writing to explore narratives of homelands, landscapes, traditions and cultural encounters. Most recently I've been exploring processes of making. From fermenting to foraging, dyeing and spinning wool, much of my work makes use of traditional processes and skills native to the places I inhabit. 

I am also passionate about supporting Jewish communities, and have worked extensively with communities in Scotland, India, Canada, Israel, Poland and Hungary.

Adventures

This is where I tell stories about the places I've been to, the people I've met, and the ideas that I've encountered.
