Posted by Wanda on November 30, 2015
The L.E. Shore Memorial Library and the Arts Advisory Council proudly presents The Year of the Craft, an exhibit featuring 24 high-calibre makers from the Grey Bruce Region. A one-of-a-kind artisan demonstration day will be taking place on Saturday, December 5th from 11:00 am- 3:00 pm to celebrate the opening of this unique show.
The show will feature ceramics, blown glassware, violin makers, woven willow and grapevines, woodworking, bookbinding, jewellery, welding, weaving, quit making, iron work and beading.
The demonstrating artists are featured in Backroad Craft: Fine Craft in Grey & Bruce Counties, a portfolio book written and photographed by Becky Comber, Kate Civiero and Heather Hughes. This collaborative effort was created to showcase the thriving arts culture in our area and to highlight the signature aesthetics of our region.
The Year of the Craft will be exhibiting from Dec 1st to Dec 31st during regular library hours.
