MAR 8 TEXTILE JEWELRY
Not all guild members weave with yarn or use a loom to fabricate their creations. This month two of our jewelry makers will tell us about themselves and their work. Metalsmith, Jeanie Pratt will discuss her brooches and other pieces that combine woven metal strips, wire bobbin lace, semi-precious stones and colorful enamel. Her work has appeared in several national publications and can be found at the prestigious Mobilia Gallery in Boston.
Jewelry designer and professional colorist D’Elin Lohr works her magic with
beads and thread creating beautiful, colorful bracelets and necklaces. Many of her pieces evoke an exotic theme through the deft use of color and texture.
Come hear about what inspires these two talented members and a little about the processes that are involved in making their distinctive jewelry. Be sure to wear any pieces of Jeanie or D’Elin jewelry you own. There may be a few pieces for sale at the meeting too, so bring your checkbook!
APR 12 SEEING COLOR IN EVERYTHING
Kathrin Weber, the founder of “Blazing Shuttles,” is known for her colorful hand-dyed warps and woven pieces, and is one of the most popular workshop leaders in the nation. In April, Kathrin will show photos of her work and discuss the inspiration for her striking color palettes. She also promises “lots of stories that pop up along the way and a lively Q&A afterwards.” Wear something colorful and enjoy the show!
