Weaving in the Present Tense: Textiles Commissioned for Penland
Amanda Thatch is the studio coordinator for Textiles and Drawing/Painting at Penland School of Crafts. She works in textiles, drawing, and artist books, and is grateful/amazed to be among the group of remarkable weavers who participated in the 2017 Penland centerpiece commission.
Asheville batik & tie-dye artist Jessica Kaufman returns from her 1.5 month exploration into the rich batik & dye traditions of the Kutch region in western India. Kutch is responsible for providing India with most of its wax-resist and thread-resist fabrics. Small, family-run, 5th generation dyehouses are still operational today, many of which produce hundreds of meters of cloth per day with rudimentary tools and inherited designs. Join us on the evening of April 2 at Local Cloth to see Jessica’s slideshow of her time living and studying with the artists themselves, and oooh-ahhh over the pile of fabrics she brought back!
Asheville Area Arts Council doors are locked at 5 PM.
Please RSVP so that we can send you the door code the day before the event.
Fiber Feel Day

Meet your local fiber farmer!
Fiber Feel Day is in its 5th year and celebrates the annual harvest of fiber from local farms. While focusing on fleece, mostly newly shorn from sheep, angora goats and rabbits, alpaca and llama, you may also find value added products from yarn to hand sewn bags, and natural dyes. Many vendors also demonstrate in their booths.
