Duluth Fiber Handcrafters Guild

The Duluth Fiber Handcrafter's Guild has already taken over a little corner of the Duluth Art Institute; their Fiber Studio is one of the nice perks the DAI makes available to artists in the area.  But Saturday's blow out will really give folks a sense of what they do.  And you might even get a notion to try your hand at it.

Annie Dugan shares several art events this week in the Twin Ports, including:

- Tomorrow night's Tweevenings discussion series at the Tweed Museum of Art features Bill Shipley talking about the works of New York Sculptor Leslie Bohnenkamp,

- An art show opening on Friday at The Red Herring Lounge featuring the works of Ryan Lemahieu, Chris Monahan & Esther Piszczek, and

Duluth Fiber Handcrafters Guild

In 1974, a group of Northland folks interested in weaving, knitting, spinning, wool dyeing and the like formed the Duluth Fiber Handcrafters Guild.

Perhaps it was just an offshoot of the back-to-the-land movement of the '70s, but over 40 years later, they're still going strong.
