Fiber Arts Guild
Byron Center, Michigan – The Lakeshore Fiber Arts Guild’s next meeting will be on Wed., Nov. 2, featuring Julia Voake on “Eco Dyeing and Printing,” at the Holland Area Arts Council, 150 East 8th St., Holland, MI 49423, starting promptly at 6:30pm with social time beginning at 6pm. Non-members are asked to pay $5 toward the speaker’s fee.
Eco dyeing and printing are two terms that refer to a process of using natural plants and minerals to add color and pattern to fabrics. A technique that is almost as old as man, it has resurfaced among contemporary fiber artists and spread worldwide with the publishing of the book Eco Colour by India Flint. Julia Voake will talk about the process of dyeing and printing fabric and paper using this technique as well as having many samples of her work and a demonstration of the process.
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.
