Join us for our first Blacksheep Guild meeting of the year and welcome Linda Heiple, long-time Blacksheep weaver. Linda will share the history of the drawloom, along with techniques and examples of the beautiful textiles that she has produced using it.
We will meet at our usual location (Redwood City’s Veterans Senior Center). We’ll begin setting up at 5:30 PM, with dinner at 6:30 PM.
PLEASE NOTE: we will be in a different room than usual. Please look for signs.
Bro. Nich Perez, CSC’s current project, “LETTERS: The Art of Grieving”, is a a documentary film about the powerful transformations of grief into art. The film explores the art that intertwines with the lives of three women artists: Joan Schulze, local poet and fiber artist who lost her husband to dementia, a sketch artist whose 9-week-old son died unexpectedly, and a young painter who lost her mother to brain cancer. The film examines their art as love letter to the ones they have lost. https://vimeo.com/282166036
Welcome Black Sheep Guild Members, Knitters, Crocheters, Immigrants and their Descendents!
We are delighted to welcome Cindy Weil, founder of the Immigrant Yarn Project, for our September meeting.
This talk is designed to help fiber artists feel more comfortable making fearless choices when using color in their work by paying attention to the colors around them. In addition to digital images, Kathrin will have samples of weaving and dye work. https://blazingshuttles.com/
