The Southern Highland Craft Guild opened its newest member-focused show “Sparkle” on Saturday August 7. On the second level of the Folk Art Center in the Focus Gallery, the work of five Guild Members were on display from August 7 through November 9.
Disciplines represented included metalsmithing, wheel-thrown ceramics, batiking, hand-dyed and sewn apparel, and glass blowing. Members featured are Jason Janow, Erin Janow, Robin Ford, Teresa Hays, and Dawn Hinsley-Jones.
“I start with white fabric and through layering textile design processes including but not limited to dyeing, printing, silk screening and hand painting, I create richly colored and patterned fabrics for accessories and clothing. All processes including surface design, garment design, and garment construction are completed within my studio. I create with thought and care what I hope are functional, timeless, sustainable garments.” ~ Teresa Hays
