Please mark your calendar and help us welcome our Fibreworks Kingston Instructor, LORRAINE ROY to Kingston.

Sharing time with an artist that has taken a lifetime to perfect her personal style and develop a well recognized voice is a precious gift. Our  Fibreworks Weekend Workshop students will experience a joy in the design process offered rarely now, and we anticipate that this workshop will include a very special gathering of like-minded, eager students, many coming from a distance to enjoy this time with their very much sought after Master Design Instructor.

Spring in Kingston, ON - along the Lake Ontario and St. Lawrence River corridor is indeed special. The water, the rocks, the land forms and the light - especially the light will give way to new insight and appreciation for the surroundings offered as inspiration. Our workshop students will have the chance to explore hands-on textile arts exploration in this classroom in all new ways. Their multi-talented artist Instructor will lay out the plan for weekend design play, creativity in cloth and stitch, and her students will be challenged to create their own small masterpieces in this very special shared art form.

Fertile Ground #20

Few life forms have inspired as many mythologies and legends as our giant companions, the trees. As the oldest living creatures on this planet, they bring to mind security, shelter, and connections to our past. Most cultures, ancient and modern, feature trees prominently in their stories. 

As individuals, we often form strong personal connections with particular species based on our memories and experiences. In this workshop, we will examine all aspects of the tree from the scientific to the flight of fancy, and create designs that reflect our personal relationships with them.

Spring Fields #2
Lorraine  will share with her students her background collage techniques that will complement the design process. Students will come with their favourite tree in mind, and examine it from a number of angles to help develop your personal vision and to supply inspiration for many future projects.


While heading to Kingston, plan to come early and visit the KINGSTON FIBRE ARTISTS Show and Sale "A STITCH IN TIME" at the Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning - 370 King St. just east of the lights at Sir John A. MacDonald and King St.

The Show is in the Community Gallery, lower level just steps from the waterfront. (Try the Juniper Café for an afternoon light dinner til 5 pm.)
