RED – A Study Group Exhibit

Most years our Scandinavian Weavers Interest Group chooses a technique to study, but two years ago we chose to set our weaving goals to focus on a color at the heart of so many Scandinavian folk textiles — red.

Please come to see this warm and lively show at the Textile Center of Minnesota Community Gallery, May 12-June 25, 2016.

For our 2016 exhibit, members chose many paths in technique and materials.   We didn’t exclude the rest of the color wheel completely; our only criteria was that red needs to be a significant element of the piece. Some pieces are mostly red, and others are grand experiments in fitting red into a pleasing combination.
