Here we go into another exciting round of fiber arts of all sorts. Each year we groan, "what are we going to find that's fun and NEW???" And each year we find so many choices we can't fit them all in. (Thank Goodness!)
This year we are introducing Val Galvin from Chemainus. She is a very popular teacher of hooked rugs among other things and she and her hookers are going to have a great time on Denman.
We also have two new quilting teachers (new to US that is) - Mavis Reynolds and Anne Hall. That gorgeous star below is Anne's one day paper-piecing class.Plus some of our favourite return teachers ... Carol Piercy, Barb Mortell, Ionne McCauley, and back for a second round we have Anne Mathers and her amazing pet portraits.
From Portland Oregon we have Sussanna Czeranko who will be teaching a one-day wet felting class in making sturdy beautiful slippers designed to fit your own feet perfectly. Cynthia Minden will be teaching a two-day basketry class and Anna Heywood-Jones will once again lead a group of intrepid explorers out to scavenge materials for a local dye-making class. (Take a peek at the gorgeous colour you can produce from Hemlock in the class descriptions)
To top it all off, Carole Vosburgh has once again volunteered to organize a Wearable Art Show for the Saturday night. Make sure you contact her (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you want to create a costume for the show, well in advance as spots are limited. If you're too shy to show it off yourself, Carole will arrange for a model. The theme this year is Canada's 150th.
