Hi SDA-WA! The Fiber Fusion show will soon be traveling to Redmond where it will reside at VALA. In conjunction with the show moving to VALA/Redmond, we will have several opportunities to participate in related events. The first opportunity is to teach (or take!) a class at the Redmond Senior Center. We will post more about the class once it’s finalized. If you’re interested in teaching a class, please see the call below!
Call for teachers:
We are looking for a SDA member volunteer to teach a free 2 hour community class/ demonstration in conjunction with the Fiber Fusion exhibition in Redmond. The class will be held at the Redmond Sr Center in a classroom with a sink, so wet processes are possible. The Senior Center has reserved Wednesday November 16 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. for this event. This is an excellent opportunity to try out a class idea, generate potential students for a longer paid class you’re offering, or get some teaching experience on your resume.
Deadline for proposals is Wednesday August 24 at 7 pm. Please send a short description of what you will do / offer and a very short description of yourself. If chosen, these will be published in the Redmond Parks & Recreation catalogue. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org
WOW! We are blown out of the water! We received 245 entries from 88 artists!
That represents about 40% of our membership! We are pleased that the homegrown entry system developed by Claire Jones worked with very few problems. Thanks to all who entered. It is confirmation that we are doing the right thing. I am thrilled and excited to see your art.
