Textile Crafternoon with Craft LAIR artist Kristina Vermeulen

March 17, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

- Free

Join us for a FREE crafternoon March 17th from 11am-2pm. Bring in your latest textile project to work on and get feedback from Kristina and your fellow fibre fiends. Get inspired with tips and tricks for your next knitting/crochet/weaving/spinning adventure!

Meet Kristina:
Kristina Vermeulen is an interdisciplinary artist currently based in Eastern Passage, N.S. She received her BFA in Fine Arts from NSCAD University in 2007. Having grown up on a hog farm in the Annapolis Valley, much of her work has been heavily influenced on exploring the rural experience and the routine nature of raising livestock.

Though her earlier work was based in mixed media drawing and printmaking, much of her current work is focused on fibre and textile arts. Common to her practice is a central theme of working in multiples and creating work using highly repetitive processes.

During her residency at the Centre for Craft Nova Scotia, she is looking to expand her work in tapestry weaving and explore imagery that encapsulates the feeling of equanimity.

About our Craft LAIR:

Complementing our pre-professional summer residency and our airCRAFT career development residency program, the Craft LAIR supports craft artists with at least three years of independent professional practice and have an interest in community engagement. These eight to ten week, project-based residencies offer craft-artists a free, semi-private, work/display space adjacent to our Mary E. Black Gallery.
