The Shows

Showcasing the work of member weavers is an essential part of every ANWG conference. Everyone is encouraged to participate in as many events as they wish.

The theme for the Fashion Show is Wild and Wonderful Wearables. The Fashion Show is on Saturday evening, July 1st, in the Farquhar Auditorium in the University Centre. We are looking forward to seeing the wonderful handmade articles on which our fellow ANWG members have been working.

The Juried Show and Open Show are showcases for weaving, spinning, felting, dyeing and other fibre arts such as baskets, silk fusion and weaving with paper and recycled materials. The theme for the Juried Show is Super Natural Celebration and the theme for the Open Show is Naturally Wonder-Full.

The Instructors’ Showcase is a place for the instructors teaching at the conference to exhibit their creations.

All shows are open to the public and do not have an admittance fee. The Juried, Open and Instructors’ Shows are open June 30th – noon to 8 pm, July 1st and 2nd – 9 am to 5 pm. The Fashion Show display, due to events beyond our control, is open on July 2nd only from 9 am to 5 pm.

 

The Fashion, Juried and Open Shows all have associated awards supported by various Guilds. If your Guild would like to support an award, please contact guilds@anwgconference2017.com
