Online meeting

Given the current circumstances, it seems we won’t be able to have our guild in-person meetings for some time. Since we all miss each other we decided to try an online meeting for all guild members interested.

We are going to have a Show and tell/critique meeting and see how it goes. It will take place on Tuesday March 31st at 2pm via Zoom.

For this first time we would like to know if you are interested. RSVP to lauratabakman@yahoo.com if you want to participate. You will get an invitation to join the meeting once she gets your response. You’ll get a link and some instructions with the invitation.
In the mean time you can download Zoom to your computer or any device you prefer to use. https://zoom.us/

Artist talk cancelled

Out of concern for the health and safety of our membership and our community, the artist talk scheduled to take place Saturday March 21st at The Brewhouse Association Gallery is cancelled. Like many, we are closely following news of the COVID-19 outbreak and will continue to err on the side of caution in regards to our scheduled programming.
Participating artists can pick up their artwork on Saturday March 21st between 2:00 – 5:00 pm.

Spring Potluck cancelled

Out of concern for the health and safety of our membership and our community, the Spring Potluck scheduled to take place this Saturday, March 14 will be postponed until a later date. Like many, we are closely following news of the COVID-19 outbreak and will continue to err on the side of caution in regards to our scheduled programming.
The tentative plan is that we will reschedule this event in the early fall. So save all of your items!

Intro to Sculptural Peyote with FI2019 exhibiting artist Beth Blankenship sponsored by Contemporary Craft.
Add a new skill to your art practice toolbox. In this workshop, students will be introduced to a technique that will give their beadwork a new dimension. Sculptural peyote stitch uses just beads, thread, and tension to create 3-dimensional objects.

August 12-16, 2019
Knitting with Glass with FI2019 exhibiting artist Carol Milne sponsored by Touchstone Center for Crafts, 1hour from Pittsburgh in Farmington, PA.
Learn to knit with glass! Working with strands of wax, you will knit small objects to transform into glass using the lost wax casting process. Carol will cover all aspects of glass casting: wax-working, spruing waxes, mold-making, kiln schedules, divesting, and cold working. All levels are welcome, but beginners should be prepared to be challenged.
Combining her passion for knitting with her love for cast glass and sculpture, Carol is the lone pioneer in the field of knitted glass: creating knitted work in glass for over a decade.
