Jamie Rawding, Artist
Some people are born as natural athletes, teachers or engineers. Jamie was born to be an artist. She has been a “maker” since childhood. Over the years, her medium has varied: Jamie is a trained metalsmith and has a distinct line of contemporary jewelry. She trained as a photographer and had the privilege of living in Asia and Europe, in addition to the US, which has greatly influenced her art. Currently, she is a student in the KOH Atelier at the Gage Academy of Art, studying under the guidance of Mark Kang O'Higgins. The Atelier is a full-time, multi-year program that focuses heavily on observational drawing and painting.

Cambria Cox, Field Tripper-in-Chief
The Field Trip Society motto, semper quaerens, translates as "always curious, always seeking." Whether it's foraging for wild foods, sailing on the Salish Sea, or discovering the art guilloché and engine turning, field trippers are always up for trying something out of the ordinary. The Field Trip Society strives to offer opportunities to broaden your knowledge, dabble in something new, and become inspired to learn even more. They partner with experts who are passionate about what they do and are eager to share it with others. Classes take place in restaurants, forests, homes, shops, boats, parks or anywhere else our curiosity takes us. The Field Trip Society launched in the fall of 2015 by owner Cambria Cox.
