The Lakeshore Fiber Arts Guild’s next program will feature Jennifer Gould on “Disperse Dyes for Synthetic Fabrics” on Wed., Jan. 7, at the Holland Area Arts Council, 150 East 8th St., Holland, MI 49423, starting at 6:30pm.  Non-members are asked to pay $5 toward the speaker’s fee. 

Disperse dye is a special type of dye made specifically for polyester, nylon, acrylic, and acetate rayon fabrics. Jennifer’s talk will focus on transfer printing and its possibilities with synthetics with many actual samples.  A short hands-on portion will be possible for those interested. 

Jennifer Gould makes art dolls and hand printed fabrics at her home in Byron Center.  She sells her dolls year-round at YT Galleria in Grand Rapids where her annual show is currently on through Dec. 31.  The Galleria is located at 966 Cherry St., SE; 616-451-8817.

There will also be a Surface Design Association (SDA) Swatch Book with over a 100 pages of members’ actual fabric pieces for attendees to view and discuss.

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.
