Doing What Comes Naturally: Hand Weavers, Spinner & Dyers of Alberta
The members of the Hand Weavers, Spinners & Dyers of Alberta are pleased to honour the United Nations International Year of Natural Fibres (INYF) 2009 with the theme of “Doing What Comes Naturally” for their latest exhibition of work from the multi-talented artists.
The theme invites viewers to make connections with beautiful colours and textures that are reflected through what we wear and do in everyday life. The HWSDA members have created pieces that deeply explore what they each “do naturally” through their use of fibres, both natural and man-made. While exploring this natural theme, the members of the HSWDA reflect on their growing desire for “groundedness” in an increasingly frenetic world that relies so heavily on modern technology.
