Where I Lay My Head

Exhibition Duration: May 1st - May 23rd, 2017

Exhibition Reception: May 2nd from 7:00 - 9:00pm

Every year the Etobicoke Hand Weavers and Spinners Guild’s executive poses a challenge to their members. This year they asked their members to embellish a 12"x12" pillow. The members could use any weaving, knitting or felting technique that they desired. They were encouraged to take this opportunity to try a new technique or weaving pattern. This exhibition also showcases other pieces the members have created throughout the year.
