Asilomar 2017 Grant Fundraiser

This fundraiser is for monies to be put aside to award scholarships to attend conference. One member from each of our five areas is selected each year. Within our area, Diablo has has several members chosen.

The theme for this year is an ocean or beach-themed artwork, woven and/or handmade. They are looking to weavers and dyers for colorful beach totes or scarves, coasters, or placemats. To spinners and basket makers for fun sea creatures, creative uses of kelp, driftwood, or scavenged beach shells and things. Jewelry is another option. Let your imaginations run the gamut.

You don't have to be attending Asilomar 2017 to participate. Just give your item to our Liaison, Vilija, who will transport it to the Conference. All entries need to email in a photo of your finished object [or object in production] along with dimensions to:  egwathney@aol.com by April 15, 2015

All finished items should include your name, material, techniques and any additional information you want to add. If you are attending the conference, bring the item with you to Registration. Some items will have a silent auction, others will be in a raffle for which tickets are sold
