November 5-7, 2021
Historic Seville Square, Pensacola: 9am - dusk.
Great Gulf Coast Arts Festival
A national "showcase" show, The Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival, one of the best in the nation, celebrates a wide range of arts from music and performing arts, to regional & culinary arts, and best of all, to craft and visual arts. The Heritage Area especially honors those practices passed down through our culture, all in a notable setting of another historical art - architecture.
After 37 years of participation,I'm still awed by its effect on the many visitors who come and support the artists every year. Look for me on corner of Zaragossa St. & Seville Square, surrounded by other weavers & spinners, potters, woodworkers, jewelers, glassworkers, and more.
Re: Covid considerations, there is extra space between booths, sanitizing stations , and patrons are asked to wear masks. A few activities (children's, international artist invitation, etc,) are postponed 'til next year. However, the park is full and the Heritage section is ongoing with demonstrators.
At the previous GGAF show,
I won an award and became part of a succession of artists who are "passing the torch". The winner creates something for the next winner. The shawl in the pics is my contribution. It is "modeled" by one of my fav paintings, Wm. Holman Hunt's Lady of Shalott.
See more on lace imagery.

Look for the spinning wheel and mounds of wool. I'll be spinning all weekend.

for adults: TRI-WEAVING WORKSHOPS
The triangle frame offers a great way to weave LOTS of texture & color into a
simple wrap in just a few hours. A unique process for beginning or experienced "yarn people", it weaves from two opposing corners at the same time.Use those colorful,glitzy, textured novelty yarns and also recycle leftover yarns from other projects to make a full-size shawl, scarf, throws, totes, curtains, etc.
Optional frame provided (yours to keep), or DIY. We will learn 3 techniques, which you will continue at your own pace at home.
Visit the sheep, and come weave at my "farmette", 291 Green Meadows Dr., Monticello. $70, +-frame: $25, through Visa/Mc (by phone), check, or Paypal. Pre-handout and map sent on registration.
Call for details, 850-997-5505.or email me.
See more info and many samples of projects & workshops: Classes. Ask for one in your area. See finished items at Triangle Weaves page.
for adults: PAPER-MAKING WORKSHOPS
A fun process that yields wonderfully textured papers, to be used for cards, mats, bookmarks, photo or painting backgrounds, bookmaking, scrapbooking, or journaling. Or mold it into 3-D forms: boxes, planters, etc.
We will make simple frames with embroidery hoops & screening, grind a mix of pulp from colorful junkmail and abaca fibers (for strength), and embellish with other fibers, petals, yarns, glitter, etc. See samples.
