Cameron Taylor-Brown speaking on "Color in Cloth: The Weaves You Want and Why"

Diablo Weavers Guild is hosting Cameron Taylor-Brown at their monthly meeting on February 17th.

Cameron’s talk will be: Color in Cloth: The Weaves You Want and Why.” We are excited to have Cameron come and spend some time with us and would like to invite our fellow fiber enthusiasts to join us.

From Cameron’s website []: “My artwork reflects a passion to shape order out of chaos – to start with bits of thread and create something complex and satisfying where nothing existed before. As I weave, I embrace and celebrate the ancient heritage and language of woven cloth. The rhythms and interplay of pattern, color and texture fascinate me, and the tactile quality of the actual fiber is extremely satisfying. I thrive on the challenges and opportunities presented to me as I move forward to explore new and interesting possibilities.”
