Spring has arrived on the Sunshine Coast–the crocuses are blooming and the robins are singing! The sun has arrived on the deck at the yurts and spring cleaning is in full swing.
We have an exciting season planned for FibreWorks Studio & Gallery, beginning with “Materialize”–an exhibition by the Sunshine Coast Surface Design Association. We have such a talented group of artists working with fibres, fabrics and multi-media and it is a pleasure to showcase this collection beginning April 05 (Saturday – 2 to 4 pm) with an opening reception. Many of the artists will be in attendance to answer questions about their inspirations and techniques.
We have postponed Kerrie Ann Riles (Australia) exhibition due to illness. Many of you will remember Kerrie Anne from her artist-in-residency period at FibreWorks two years ago. We wish her a speedy recovery and a return to her creative practices.

We are so pleased that Elin Noble has recovered from her illness of last fall and will return to FibreWorks to present two workshops in October, 2014. Please note, we have 4 spaces available in “Additions/Subtractions” and 6 spaces in “Alternative Marbling”.
In the studio; we have local alpaca and llama fibres and lots of colour to enhance our feelings of spring.
Weaver’s Circle with Mary Bentley will begin at the end of April–every Wednesday, beginning at 9:30 a.m.–a great opportunity to explore the art of weaving with a wonderful instructor.
Enjoy the spring flowers and showers–see you at the yurts!
