The Lakeshore Fiber Arts Guild presents “Beadweaving and Weaving, In Progress” by Jenny Schu of East Lansing on April 2 at the Holland Area Arts Council, 150 East 8th St., Holland, MI 49423, starting at 6:30pm. Door opens at 6pm. Nonmembers and guests are asked to donate $5 toward the speaker’s fees.
With many examples of her work on hand and a PowerPoint presentation as illustration, Jenny will discuss how her exposure to fiber art at a young age has led her to dive feet first into the fiber world. She taught herself beadweaving techniques at a young age, which led to her desire to weave and eventually obtain a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Michigan with a concentration in Fiber Art. All of this progress has led Jenny to receiving grants, exhibiting nationally and winning awards. She currently shows her bead woven jewelry at Grove Gallery in East Lansing and the Lansing Art Gallery in downtown Lansing.
The Lakeshore Fiber Arts Guild invites anyone interested in the textile fiber arts to their monthly program meetings held the first Wednesday of each month at the Holland Area Arts Council.
