Sign up to help HERE!
WEST tour May 9-10 and May 16-17
Here is the description from the WEST website:
“WEST is a free, self-guided tour that champions the abundance of talent within Austin’s large and wildly diverse creative community. The public is invited to discover new artistic talent, see working studios, learn about artists’ tools, techniques, and inspirations, and support the arts community by building their collections and supporting local artisans.”
We got tired of confusing Program Nights (2nd Thursdays at NorthWest Rec Center) and Project Night (4th Thursdays at Austin Rec Center) so we decided to re-name it to Hands-on Night.
Stay tuned, the Fall line up is being finalized. Our September meeting will be a wrap up of all the wonderful conferences our members went to this summer– Convergence, Complex Weavers and Saori, as well as an overview of the upcoming Contemporary Handweavers of Texas conference to be hosted by… us!
