Did you know that April is Fibre Arts month? Well, it is! In Montreal, April is dedicated to a month-long celebration and promotion of Fibre Art in a festival called En Avril.
How will you participate? The En Avril website has put together a comprehensive program of galleries, artist-run centers and artists who are hosting events or are presenting work in this festival. Fill up your calendar with fiberlicious outings!
How am I participating? Well, Au Deuxieme, the studio that I am a member of, is offering an exciting weekend of workshops during our open house celebration next weekend! On Saturday April 14th and Sunday April 15th, Au Deuxieme will be open to the public from 12-7. Come on out and check out the mini gallery of art made by the members and if you are more of a hands on type, stick around for our workshops! On Sunday we will be offering a print workshop on the basics of block-printing, paper stencils and silk-screen and on Sunday we will offering a dye workshop showing you Shibori techniques with natural dyes!

Happy Easter weekend!
