tūdūsō is the collaborative work of artist Victoria Hoyt and fashion designer Demetria Geralds. Together, they are exploring cross-disciplinary approaches to naturally-dyed textiles and garments and sowing seeds of education through teaching, exhibitions, entrepreneurship, and outreach. The duo works to create new spaces of possibility by honoring what takes time, from making items by hand to building relationships. Their joint name tūdūsō (pronounced tuh-do-so) refers to their mission: to do sewing and sowing in all of their projects. Hoyt was a Union Fellow in 2012, the year the program was established; she is the first alumnus to participate in the revamped program.
