We are proud to be part of The Works Art and Design Festival, held in downtown Edmonton from June 22 to July 4.

Come and join us in the Vignettes Building, 10004-10032 103A Ave, daily from 11 to 8 pm (select hours).

Enjoy demonstrations and exhibits of various Fibre Art techniques, both traditional and contemporary, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation, with art projects that build community and tell the complex story of Canada’s people and places. Gain an appreciation for how fibre art skills used long ago for warmth and decoration, are still used today for the same purposes.

Participate in hands on demonstrations and activities (times posted daily) based on different techniques each day, including spinning, weaving, felting, knitting and hand quilting, traditional rug hooking and all kinds of stitching, with emphasis on the transition of traditional techniques into contemporary art forms. Art exhibited expresses these skills, and each included an Artist Statement indicating the artist’s interpretation and method.
