A creative retreat for All Fiber Artists  -  possibly in 2015 or 2016

Fiber Artists, Crafters and Teachers in an atmosphere of sharing and creativity!

Wouldn't you love to be jammin' with friends in a week of inspiration, exploration and exchange. A retreat open to fiber artists that knit, spin, quilt, crochet, bead, collage, sew, felt, weave and in general, manipulate fiber.

If you're a Fiber Artist, join Laura for a Fiber Jam and Retreat!  Bring projects to work on and a few finished pieces for Show & Tell. Propose a small class, challenge, art exercise, interview, slide show, lecture, demo or panel discussion. We'll consider the list of proposals, and schedule our days with activities, events and free time.

 Laura W. Pierce - Fiber Artist!

Laura self-portrait Laura W. Pierce loves orchestrating the Fiber Jam.

A fourth generation rug hooker, Laura enjoys pulling loops of chunky wool through a backing of Linen.   Using as-is and hand-dyed wool, she enjoys the method and madness of combining colours and textures to create Rug Art.   Laura teaches Traditional Rug Hooking in Sonoma County and at camps around the country. With a background in Photography and Drafting, she shares those skills with her students; creating patterns from photographs or drawing directly on backing.   Her teaching style is collaborative; she will lend you her artistic eye.

Laura grew up in a home where friends, music and art were important.   She knows the good of mixing various ideas and abilities to create wonderful music and lively conversation!   Like a live performance, the magic is there for those who attend and participate.  The memories and friendships will last a lifetime.
