– The Lakeshore Fiber Arts Guild’s next program meeting is on Wed., March 7, featuring Sandra Hansen on “Our Exquisite Pollution Through Papermaking” at the Holland Area Arts Council, 150 East 8th St., Holland, MI 49423, starting promptly at 6:30pm with social time beginning at 6pm. Guests are asked to pay $10 toward the speaker’s fee. (If the Holland Public Schools are closed due to bad weather that day, the meeting will be cancelled and rescheduled for the following Wednesday.)
Sandra Hansen’s art flows around the topic of water and plastics in the water. After becoming an Eco or environmental artist, she began making large scale papers in an ecologically sustainable way. Common motifs in her paper are waves, rivers, and bubbles. Sandra will bring a small papermaking set-up to show how she makes her unique paper which fuses natural and artificial materials together.
Sandra Hansen is an international, Environmental artist, optimist, and world traveler. She is the founder and CEO of Artists’ Cultural Exchange, a non-profit organization to bring artists of different nationalities together. Her primary medium is paper making, but she also enjoys drawing with colored pencils and oil pastels. She began making journals using her own art and handmade papers and other media on the covers, with handmade cotton papers from India inside.
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.
