16th Annual Fashion Show of Wearable Art




Join us May 9 and 10 for the Folk Art Center’s celebration of textile arts. Throughout the weekend, craftspeople will be sharing their inspiration and expertise as the Southern Highland Craft Guild hosts Fiber Weekend 2015. 

On Sunday, the Folk Art Center’s auditorium will be transformed into a runway for the Sixteenth Annual Fashion Show of Wearable Art.  Fiber artist Liz Spear will emcee the event.  Styles showcased will range from contemporary to traditional, from funky to classic, made by members of the Southern Highland Craft Guild and other regional artists.  Throughout the fashion show, Liz will explore many fiber art processes, and focus on the various schools and studios in the area which offer classes in textiles to everyone from the beginner to the experienced fiber artist.   There will be two separate showings of the Fashion Show, at 1 and 3pm.
