Fibre Walk

The Fibre Arts Festival will be hosting a Fibre Walk (a fibre based art walk) in downtown Amherst during the Fibre Arts Festival this year.  2-3 pieces of work will be displayed in a downtown business for the festival to allow festival goers to visit the shops and services at their own pace and see some of the talent that this area has to offer.  Fibre artists of all ages, experience and ability are encouraged to participate.  If you or someone you know would like to have your work displayed contact Andrew MacGregor at amacgregor@amherst.ca or 902-667-3352
