2018 marked 65 years of EWG supporting weaving, spinning, dyeing and other fibre arts
65th Anniversary Exhibition at the Alberta Craft Council, 10186 – 106 Street
April 27 to June 8, 2019
A tea towel has a function. We see and use it every day. And yet for 65 years Edmonton weavers, have decided to put time and effort into designing and mastering handmade goods that most would consider ubiquitous.
The exhibition provides an opportunity to view the tea towel in a different light. We invite the viewer to contemplate the value of a handwoven tea towel beyond its function – a visual testament to the masterful design and skill of the makers.
Participating EWG members: Colleen Balding, Jen Black, Margaret Berg, Kathy Buse, Carole Dodd, Kyla Fischer, Marge Gray, Maryanne Hawryluk, Pirkko Karvonen, Diane Kozens, Colynn Krull, Barbara Leung, Kim McCollum, Catherine Melnychuk, Kathy Moore, Sandra Schulz and Lyn Zuberbuhler
