Fibre Art Walking Tour

Feature Festival Event:
                Fibre Art Walking Tour

                             By: Joan Beswick


Downtown Amherst is ready for the Nova Scotia Fibre Arts Festival. Festival flags fly all over town, and windows display festival signs.

Businesses and offices are also participating in the Fibre Art Walking Tour - their windows are adorned with the work of regional fibre artists.

A donation of $5 to the festival will give you a walking tour ‘passport’. This passport is your guide to all of the featured fibre art. It includes brief biographies of the artists, descriptions of their work, and a map showing locations.  Your name will also be entered on a ballot which gives you the opportunity to win one of several festival bags, a piece of fibre art,

or the grand prize basket filled with fibre art supplies from Deanne Fitzpatrick’s studio.

Come to the festival headquarters. Make a $5 donation and receive your Fibre Art Walking Tour Passport.

Relax and enjoy  ....  walk around beautiful downtown Amherst, stop and view our artisans’ creations, and savour this visual feast. You can do this walking tour anytime during the week ... you may even want to do it several times just to get your fill of fibre.

And keep your fingers crossed ... you might just walk away with a wonderful prize as well.
