For the most part, my fabulous Day Job as Assistant Director of a performing arts center and my fascinating hobby job as a sericulturist and weaver stay pretty separate. Everybody at the office knows about my weaving and silk work, and a lot of them have seen me other places – but our mission at the Center is *performing* arts, so my creative endeavors don’t interact much with my administrative work.
UNTIL NOW! Our building is 100 years old this year, and as part of our Century Celebration, we’re doing an event on August 8 called The Culture of Cloth (link to PDF of event flyer). Artist Sue Benner, who coordinated the weaving of the big tapestry panels in our Meadows Hall, will give a presentation of her work, members of the Dallas Handweavers and Spinners Guild will be demonstrating weaving, spinning, and surface design of textiles, and I’ll be reeling silk.
Me, reeling silk. I did these videos for an article in Spindlicity, and filmed them in Meadows Hall where we will be demonstrating.
The event is FREE, but we do ask that folks let us know they’ll be coming – please call the Sammons Center at 214-520-7789, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Diane at email@example.com
