Fibreworks Studio & Gallery (Madeira Park, BC – Sunshine Coast) #scac2011
One of the most creative artist outlets we visited during our Sunshine Coast Art Crawl 2011 was Fibreworks Studio & Gallery in Madeira Park, on the Sunshine Coast. It was amazing for several reasons, but one of them was witnessing actual yarn-threading live. Also, the yurts. Who doesn’t love yurts?
Hosted in a collection of yurts, FibreWorks showcases fibre art – basketry, paper, textiles and wood , created by local, national and international artists. FibreWorks is a private, commercial gallery showcasing professional and emerging artists.
I found the design of Fibreworks pretty cool, because of the yurts. Even more impressive, Fibreworks Studio & Gallery has an artist-in-residence program.
We toured the owner’s studio, and were given a private tour of the exhibits and the teaching workshop they have at Fibreworks. It was a very neat experience, and one I would strongly recommend that you undertake next time you are on the Sunshine Coast.
Disclosure: I participated on the Sunshine Coast Art Crawl 2011 as part of a media trip. My accommodations and transportation are compliments of our hosts and the tourism agencies in charge. I paid for a few miscellaneous expenses associated with this trip, specifically incidentals and my own shopping etc. You can follow along my adventures on the Sunshine Coast through this tag.
