Coming Events is always a fun topic. Spring Term begins March 29, 2016 and everyone will be very happy to be back at home. New Coming Events will be found as the year progresses. Here is what we have so far.
Summer Term is usually a time for studio work and vacation, but this year we are having 3 workshops! Details will follow, but right now you can make plans to attend one of them. Let us know if you are interested so we can save you a space.
First will be a 3-day Acid Dye Workshop with Sandy Kennard. This special class will be devoted to making a value progression of one color per student. For example, dye 8 depths of shade of that blue you really love, or that green you need to do landscapes. Sandy expects to do this the last week of June.
July 13-15 are the dates for the 3-day INKLE LOOM workshop taught by Phoebe McAfee. Phoebe will have looms, materials and patterns galore for your use. If you are interested and need to borrow a loom, we will try to find one, but otherwise, it isn’t too early to start shopping for your very own, or even building one.
The first week of August will be the time that Kevynne Layne, assisted by Natalie Novak, will teach a 5-day Navajo style weaving workshop. Students will use a small loom and weave an 8×12 sampler from beginning to end.
Members of the Damascus Fiber Arts School are working on a selfie project. Participating members are each weaving a 6″ x 6″ tapestry that is either a face or a tapestry that makes the viewer think of that person. These tapestries will be sent to the American Tapestry Alliance unjuried small format exhibit. This year that show will be at the Milwaukee City Library, in Wisconsin during the Handweavers Guilds of America Convergence. The dates are July 26 to August 11, 2016. ATA Small Format Unjuried Show
