( Every 1st full Weekend in November

November 2-4, 2018
Historic Seville Square, Pensacola: 9am - dusk.
Great Gulf Coast Arts Festival

A national "showcase" show, The Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival, one of the best in the nation, celebrates a wide range of arts from music and performing arts, to regional & culinary arts, and best of all, to craft and visual arts. The Heritage Area especially honors those practices passed down through our culture, all in a notable setting of another historical art - architecture.
After 37 years of participation,I'm still awed by its effect on the many visitors who come and support the artists every year. Look for me on corner of Zaragossa St. & Seville Square, surrounded by other weavers & spinners, potters, woodworkers, jewelers, glassworkers, and more.

DEMOS, PRESENTATIONS & WORKSHOPS


      Various fiberart demos and workshops for adults or kids are available in Spinning/Weaving, Paper-Making, Natural Dyes, and crayon-batik. Many of these experiences are also available thru Artist-In-Education programs for public or private schools or disabilities programs, and may be funded thru local arts agencies. Dyed 'N Wool Art offers workshops for kids, birthdays, and summer camps and Just For Schools, activities for the classroom.

Summer "Dyed 'N Wool" Art Activities include activities for groups or as a field trip for your camp. For primary thru middle school ages, small groups visit the sheep, see demos, and/or make individual projects. If field trips are not an option, I can bring all equipment, and maybe a lamb or two, to you. These activities are also great for birthday parties. See descriptions, photos, & much more on the kids pages: Dyed 'N Wool, or Just for Schools . Contact me for more info by email, or phone 850-997-5505.

for adults: TRI-WEAVING WORKSHOPS

The triangle frame offers a great way to weave LOTS of texture & color into a simple wrap in just a few hours. A unique process for beginning or experienced "yarn people", it weaves from two opposing corners at the same time.Use those colorful,glitzy, textured novelty yarns and also recycle leftover yarns from other projects to make a full-size shawl, scarf, throws, totes, curtains, etc. Optional frame provided (yours to keep), or DIY. We will learn 3 techniques, which you will continue at your own pace at home.
   
   Visit the sheep, and come weave at my "farmette", 291 Green Meadows Dr., Monticello. $70, +-frame: $25, through Visa/Mc (by phone), check, or Paypal. Pre-handout and map sent on registration.
        Call for details, 850-997-5505.or
email me.
    See more info and many samples of projects & workshops: Classes. Ask for one in your area. See finished items at Triangle Weaves page.



for adults: PAPER-MAKING WORKSHOPS
    A fun process that yields wonderfully textured papers, to be used for cards, mats, bookmarks, photo or painting backgrounds, bookmaking, scrapbooking, or journaling. Or mold it into 3-D forms: boxes, planters, etc.
     We will make simple frames with embroidery hoops & screening, grind a mix of pulp from colorful junkmail and abaca fibers (for strength), and embellish with other fibers, petals, yarns, glitter, etc. See samples.
