Art Exhibition: Three, Two, One – Create

The exhibit, “Three, Two, One – Create” is a play on words, but has a larger meaning for this show. There are three artists (Don Zeghers, Krista Zeghers and Coreen Zerr) using two artistic mediums (photography and fibre art) in one exhibit to depict the creative process. Each of the pieces in “Three, Two, One – Create” involves a collaboration between the artists.

RSVP to scfibreshed@gmail.com and please let us know if you will require a spindle or wool.

The Serendipitous Bundle. Eco Printed Scarves with Trisha Joel – CANCELLED

This experimental journey begins with looking at which botanical materials print well in close contact with silk and merino wool… and what effect different natural dyes offer. There will be the choice of creating a unique silk scarf or a merino shawl.

Part of this exploration will look also at the occasional beautiful marks left on the paper used in the process after the fun of unrolling our bundles.

The further step of over-dyeing with indigo will be demonstrated.

All materials are provided for this beginner friendly class.

FibreWorks Gallery provides a complimentary light lunch
