Say it in fibre
See how our fibre artists have answered the question of what Climate Change means to them at our exhibition of Felting, Mixed Media, Soft Sculpture, Weaving/Tapestry, Needlework, Rug Hooking, Quilting, Hand Knitting/Crochet, Textile Design, Wearables, and Other Fibre Techniques. For the first time, we have a Youth Division and a non-judged Show Only display.
Please join us for the opening reception to meet the artists and see prizes awarded. Watch for the special events when we take part in The Works art and design festival.

Opening Reception, Sunday May 6 at 2 pm

Climate Change:
What do you feel when you hear the words ‘Climate Change?’
Do they conjure up images of extreme weather destroying our planet? Science tells us it’s our fault for selfishly using our natural resources without any thought for the polluted world we leave to our grandchildren. Some believe that global warming is a natural progression of the Earth’s cycle that we are powerless to stop, while others believe it is nothing more than a hoax we can ignore.
Are other climates changing too? Politically, we are more polarized than ever before, with the left and right struggling to find any common ground. Socially, people here, of all genders, orientations, races and religions are able to participate more freely and equally than ever before, while other parts of the world struggle with the tolerance of any minorities.
Economically, the gap between rich and poor seems to be widening, creating an imbalance within countries and between them.
Do you see connections between these issues? Do you think of something else? Something more personal?
