Ann Arbor Fiberarts October, 2017 meeting

Textile artist Jacqueline Sullivan's program for the October Ann Arbor Fiberarts Guild's October 9 meeting will take listeners on her journey into painting on fabric by making creative use of layers and textures for surface design on fabric.  Her influences are from calligraphy and mixed media, and she uses jesso, molding paste, tissues, and metallic highlights.  She will also offer a workshop October 6-8 to demonstrate these techniques.  The workshop is open to non-members: see AAFG website for details. 
The Guild meeting begins at 6:30 pm, with social time until 7 pm followed by the program. Guests are welcome. Location: Zion Lutheran Church, 1501 W. Liberty in Piper Hall on the lower level, east side of building.  Elevator access. Members' work, fiber arts books, and workshop creations from summer and Sullivan's class will be on display along with books from the guild library during social time.  A member's unused wool fabric cuts  are available free with optional donation to the scholarship fund.
