Coming Events is always a fun topic. Spring Term begins April 4, 2017. New Coming Events will be found as the year progresses. Here is what we have so far.
We are planning to have our very first multi-workshop summer schedule this year. It will be published in mid-March. At this time we have a 3 day workshop on the Turkish flat weave technique known as Zili, a 2 day Natural Dye workshop, a 4 day course on the Coal Mine Raised Edge technique of pick and pick, a 5 day Navajo style weaving class, and 2 days to learn to make felted 3D vegetable shapes. More details soon! Be sure and check these out as some are on weekends to allow attendance by those who work weekdays!
Dorothee Kim, who weaves traditional tapestry, as well as Navajo style, will have an invitational exhibit at the Narthex Gallery, First Presbyterian Church, 390 NE 2nd St, McMinnville, Or 97128 from February 1 through March 31. Opening reception is February 18, from 7-9pm. Closed February 20.
Tapestry instructor Terry Olson will show her tapestries at the West Linn Lutheran Church in February and March. The church is open most days at 20390 Willamette Dr, West Linn, OR 97068. Artist’s talk will be from 9:15 to 10:30am on Sunday, February 19 at the church.
The Selfie Project we worked on for a year was also successfully completed in 2016. The resulting published book Tuesdays and Thursdays is available for $35 in our shoppe. 23 of the 46 tapestries were on display at the American Tapestry Alliance unjuried small tapestry show Tapestry Unlimited at the downtown Milwaukee Public Library in August. Twenty of these selfies will be on display at the Sandy Public Library beginning in September, 2017, in Sandy, Oregon. ATA Small Format Unjuried Show
