October meeting–Memorial Program & Workshop

Posted by on Oct 9, 2013 in News

Memorial Program—October 19, 2013
“An Extraordinary Life of Fiber”, by Elda Kohls

Elda Kohls is the epitome of fiber elegance. She has spent her life investigating and exploring the sources of color and design. After having taught more than thirty years in the public schools, she still finds teaching most rewarding and has taught locally as well as in art conferences in the Southwest and Northwest United States. She teaches silk painting, surface design techniques, and ikat weaving. Her creative surface designs, with both fabric and leather, have been shown widely in galleries and competitions, receiving many awards. Her work has been published in fiber magazines. Personally
designed Japanese silk stencils and Mylar stencils are a feature of her work. She has published a DVD in which the traditional ikat technique is shown along with comprehensive instructions and demonstrations of the ikat technique she developed.

In the afternoon, Elda will present a free trunk show, in which she will display and discuss examples of her work (1-3pm).

For those who are unfamiliar with the history of the Memorial Fund:
The Memorial Fund is used to defray expenses for special projects of interest to guild members, such as exhibits and securing leaders in handweaving and any field of interest to the general guild membership for programs and workshops. Anyone wishing to donate to this fund in memory of a member, friend, or relative may do so by contacting the guild treasurer–the list of those memorialized is in the guild yearbook.
