Early Release ArtLab
Wednesday, January 11| 1:00 – 4:00pm
Instructor: Bobbi Tilkens-Fisher
Drop-in | Free and open to all!

Join fiber artist Bobbie Tilkens-Fisher for our January early release to learn weaving basics and make a tiny tapestry from a variety of yarns, strings, and fibers.

About the instructor
Bobbie Tilkens-Fisher is a modern tapestry weaver and educator based in Thomaston, Maine and Philadelphia.  She creates large wall hangings using bold color, abstract designs and sumptuous wools. Her work challenges the notion of weaving as a 2-dimensional art form, while dismissing many of the “rules” of this traditional craft. Bobbie has taught at The Art Institute of Philadelphia, The Camden School District’s Adult Ed Program, The Fiber College and Haystack School of Craft.  She currently offers weaving workshops and retreats in her Thomaston Studio.
