Saturday and Sunday 7-8th April, 9-3pm

Saori is hand weaving that emphasises creativity and free expression. No rules, no fear – just pure absorption and immersion into weaving and working with yarn and threads. This ‘non-technique’ is meditative in nature and aims to build a clearer expression of your human self from the process itself and the resulting handwoven cloth.

Fernie Banner Project Call For Entry

2015 Fernie Banner Project Launch Day

“Banner Project 2018

For over the past decade, Elk Valley artists have added their own air to Fernie’s streets offering works of art for the 39 banners that line Highway 3 and downtown. Now, in its 14th year, we are calling out to the artists that call the Elk Valley home to once again to contribute to Fernie’s annual Banner Project. We are thrilled to again highlight various artistic mediums from artists of all ages!

What are the adjudicators looking for? Bold colours, striking imagery that stands out from a distance, variation in themes and artistic disciplines and it has to be eyecatching to the street-level observer. What kind of mediums will be accepted? Submissions of paintings, quilts, stained glass, sculpture, pottery and photography are welcome.”

For more information, check out The Arts Station’s website.

Submissions are due Tuesday, April 3rd at 2pm, so, you have time to get organized!
