Today was a busy day - Whidbey Weaver's Guild meeting in the morning, business meeting next, and a trip to Seattle to attend an art opening in the late afternoon! Above and below, I stopped at Fort Casey State Park to photo the wind in the grasses. Below, the sun brightens the seed heads.
At the opening, Mary Auld shows her work, "Dress for Maddie", woven with basketry reed. Below, Sally Anaya and hers, "Fruition", also woven with basketry materials.
They are both in the Northwest Basketry Guild, but took this course at the Univ. of Washington; Fiber Arts Certificate Program. It was three quarters, and covered a lot of territory that artists need to know, specifically in the fiber arts. They both said it was very hard, but ultimately extremely rewarding, and they benefited greatly from it. Congratulations to them for completing the course!
