on May 10th (Sat.) at SAORI Worcester 3:30pm-5:30pm

This time we feature our studio member Stacey Piwinski who has recently got MFA from The Art Institute of Boston at Leslie University, Cambridge. Her outstanding work won several prizes. She combines her weaving with her painting. She says, “I weave like I am painting, I paint like I am weaving.”. Here is her website and her blog is She will show a slide show and tell us about how she gets the idea and what her works are. We are very excited to having her at the studio to give us a wonderful inspiration.

We will have time to do regular “show and tell”, too. Don’t forget to bring your recent work to share. People who want to find out about SAORI Weaving are also welcome.
