The show features more than 130 innovative works from members of the Vancouver Island Surface Design Association. Exhibiting artists are from Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, mainland BC and the Yukon; many have exhibited, instructed and consulted internationally. Guests will see the latest in techniques along with an extensive sampling of colour, materials and texture – all reflecting the boundless imagination of these talented artists.
The workshop series “Tying the Threads” accompanies the exhibition and runs onsite June 13 – 17. Sessions include Japanese Dying, Drawing with the Sewing Machine, Character Development with Textile Techniques, Eco Printing and more. Click here for details & registration.
