Meet the Maker: Jackie Sylvester, Fibre Artist
Join us for our fourth installment of Meet The Maker featuring Jackie Sylvester. Jackie is a long time resident of Amherst Island and is an exceptional fibre artist. Come learn about her processes in botanical printing, felting and weaving. Discuss growing dye plants and what plant materials are best for printing on silk, wool and cotton. Jackie’s work is described as original fibre art and she will have several unique pieces available for sale; from gorgeous table napkins, to silk and silk-wool blend scarves, and an outstanding handwoven wrap made of wool, mohair and silver.
