Creative Hand Show and Sale 2016
The Kansas City Fiber and Weavers Guilds will hold their annual Creative Hand Show and Sale at the Old Shawnee Town Hall, located at 11600 Johnson Drive in Shawnee, Kansas. Hours for the event are Friday, November 18 from 4 pm to 9 pm and Saturday, November 19 from 10 am to 5 pm. Friday will feature an Artist Showcase starting at 7 pm featuring each artists' work along with insights into their background and what inspires them to create their art. On Saturday, exhibitors will be performing Fiber Technique Demonstrations throughout the day. Both days have free show entry and free parking.
For the past year, members of the two guilds have met monthly to share their work and inspiration. Once a year, they share their artistry and skill with the public. Artists from both groups will come together on November 18-19 for the Creative Hand Show and Sale. The show is both exhibition and sale of art-to-wear that members of both groups have created by hand.
Creativity starts with raising sheep and/or alpaca for the fibers. Then the artists spin the wool into yarn, to weave, knit or crochet the yarn into fabulous art-to-wear. Others sew, felt and bead hand dyed fabric into museum quality fiber art pieces. The results are one of a kind pieces, jackets, shawls, accessories, scarves, home décor, table linens, hand spun yarn, hand dyed roving, gifts, and holiday decorations all designed by these artists. Along with the finish products, they offer hand spun yarn and hand dyed roving.
Come and find your own handmade treasures!
