Saturday, October 7, was an exciting spin-off for the Intersections juried fiber arts exhibit at the SEAD Gallery as the Brazos Spinners and Weavers Guild visited the Children’s Museum of Brazos Valley to bring unique experiences in yarnwork and art to the community.
In partnership with Advent GX, the Brazos Spinners and Weavers hosted a fun day of activities that included a spinning wheel demonstration, a “yarnbombing” of the You Build It house, and a make-and-take fiber arts craft station.
Since 1976, the Brazos Spinners and Weavers Guild has been bringing weavers, spinners, and fiber artists from the Brazos Valley together to share their passion for their art and craft with fellow artists and the public at large. This past week, the the Guild shared this love and knowledge with the community to create a singularly engaging experience for the Brazos Valley.
As part of Advent GX’s mission to create experience through innovation and development, this event combined interactivity with heritage preservation by making an historic art readily available for public immersion. Special thanks go to the Brazos Spinners and Weavers Guild, as well as the Children’s Museum of Brazos Valley, for putting this event together in the spirit of community development and cultural preservation.
