Plain Weave Course with Jason Collingwood

Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre 139 Water Street

$550

This is an ideal course for those wishing to try out rug weaving for the first time, though with enough ‘tricks’ to also suit the more experienced weaver. Students will learn how to make a strong serviceable rug (plain weave being an excellent structure for rugs). Initially students will weave stripes and spots using two colours, learning how to overcome the selvage problems inherent in each different design. Clasped wefts, crossed wefts and compensated inlay will be covered, all these new techniques giving the weaver more freedom with design.

Free

Eastport Arts Center’s Washington Street Gallery will present Soul Journey, an exhibition by Women in Vision, from August 2-30, with an opening reception on Sunday, August 12 from 5-7 pm. An art talk will be given at 6:15 pm. Participating artists are Sherry Ashby, Lisa Marqis Bradbury, Elizabeth Ostrander and Shanna Wheelock. Along with Sharon Kiley Mack, who was unfortunately unable to join in for this exhibition, the Women in Vision group came together to encourage themselves and other women to grow wings, express and share their female voices, vision, and creativeness while living their lives along the beautiful Bold Coast of Maine. Since 2013, the group has engaged with audiences through art talks and exhibitions in Eastport, Machias and Lubec. Their focus is on journeying through life intuitively; welcoming the soul’s inexorable pull towards becoming oneself.
