MAY 20, 2017, 9am-1:30pm
Each quarterly WAC program is an open
meeting for meeting fellow fiber and
wearable artists, enjoying a guest
presenter, and showing and sharing of
beautiful wearable art.
Guest Speaker: GERI FORKNER
Presentation: LIGHT UP YOUR ART
Geri Forkner is a multi media fiber artist based in East Tennessee
who enjoys using traditional fiber processes in unique ways to express ideas about life. As well as constantly honing her skills as a weaver and felt maker, she recently
jumped into the world of electronic
textiles, a high tech process now
accessible to fiber artists. She uses
programmable lights to draw
people further into her artwork.
This newest passion, the
innovative world of wearable
technology, and her long term love
affair with traveling to find
traditional weaving will be
combined in one thought
provoking program. She will show you traditional weaving from her travels and pieces they inspired, and just enough e-textiles to raise your curiosity.
