From our Librarian, Nat Billing:
Lots of new titles went into the QSWFA library on Friday, including two copies of “Second Skin” by India Flint in the Natural Dyeing Section and “The Magic of Monoprinting” by QSWFA member Sandra Pearce. So make sure you check out the library next time you’re at Fibrecraft House!
The Introduction to Plant Dying and Simple Shibori Techniques with Anne Leon workshop has been rescheduled to Saturday and Sunday, the 26th and 27th October.
Be sure to get in early as this one is certain to fill up quickly!
The Brisbane Montessori School Art Fest will stage an exhibition and market sale of the works of emerging and established artists.
This is a great opportunity for our groups to work together and hire a table, especially since we are not having a Christmas Fair event this year.
The Art Fest welcomes artists’ works in a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, drawing, print, mixed media, ceramics, jewellery, craft and photography.
The cost of entry is $25 per artist for a maximum of 6 exhibits. Commission on the sale of each art work is 25% of the sale price, with all funds raised going to the Brisbane Montessori School Parents and Friends Association.
The deadline for entry to the exhibition and organising a market stall is October 11.
