MOLLY HARTMAN | CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Molly started this quest to make-stuff-every-day about four years ago when she started her first creative endeavor, Glitter + Rye. Since that fateful day, she has filled her hours cutting paper, molding clay, arranging flowers, sawing wood, manifesting installations and just generally getting her hands dirty as often as possible.
She oversees a whole slew of endeavors with RYE WORKSHOP and is always seeking projects for the collective that highlight the unique talents with whom we get to collaborate. In her mind, the perfect project includes the thrill of the hunt finding some kick-ass vintage pieces, flower market madness and a little sawdust in her hair.

JULIE GUINTA | WEDDING DESIGN DIRECTOR
Houston-born but NYC to the bone, Julie has got both Southern charm and Brooklyn creativity on lockdown. Armed often with an iced coffee but always a smile, Julie is RYE WORKSHOP's right-hand lady and oversees much of the company's outreach. A list-maker, a laugh-er, a do-er and a talented make-r, Julie ensures all of our events and projects run smoothly and are full of good vibes.
