Knitters, weavers, quilters and other textile-based makers—mark your calendars and get ready for some inspiration from three free upcoming online events, offered in partnership with the Textile Arts Guild of Richmond (TAGOR) and the Richmond Arts Centre.

Tomorrow (Feb. 23), the Fibre Arts Network (FAN) is offering its Circles and Lines exhibition from 1 to 2:30 p.m. From the seashore to heavenly constellations, from childhood memories to abstract visions, this exhibition’s theme of circles and lines brought out the best in each artist. This 90-minute presentation includes a descriptive slide show facilitated by TAGOR.

The Fibre Art Network (FAN) is a co-operative of artists based in Western Canada and is committed to promoting fibre as an art form, and each other as artists. For more information, click here.

“An Iceland Narrative” with Susan Purney Mark will be presented on March 23 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Can you imagine spending an entire month—halfway around the world—to create your art? This is what noted BC artist Susan Purney Mark experienced in 2019. 

She will share the unique “fire and ice” landscapes that inspired her work, her impressions of this unique country’s impressive support of the arts, and her textile artworks that were inspired by this experience. For more information, click here.

The Fibre Arts Network (FAN) will present A Tiny Seed on April 27 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. For this exhibition, FAN members will welcome spring with their personal interpretations of the theme, which may involve the growth of an idea, an invention or the evolution of a natural or handmade form. This 90-minute presentation includes a descriptive slide show facilitated by TAGOR. For more information, click here.
