Guild Meeting – February 23, 2014, 11:00 AM
Muppet Pelts and Clown Barf, or What Not to do With Art Yarn
with Sarah Anderson
We’ve all done it. We’ve created (or purchased) incredible art yarn….and then we’ve totally failed to turn it into anything attractive. The yarn was so splendid, but the project it was used in was an utter disaster.
What’s a fiber artist to do?
Please join us for a fun-filled day in which we’ll share our greatest disasters and celebrate our successes with art yarn. Local fiber artist Sarah Anderson will lead an interactive discussion in which we discuss strategies for utilizing art yarns.
Bring your most hideous art yarn project. Please also bring the project in which you triumphed over art yarn. This will be a fun, safe opportunity to laugh at our failures, and learn from one another.
Presentation starts approx 1PM. Show and Tell starts approx 11:30. Please plan to arrive about 11AM in order to fully experience Art Yarns, Clown Barfs and Muppet Pelts.
THINGS TO BRING:
- Art yarn – your own spinning or purchase
- Completed projects made with Art Yarn, successful or not satisfactory
- Quiet project if working during the presentation
- Mug for coffee or tea
- Library materials to return
Dues are Due: $30 individual, $45 family / household.
