New Opportunity for Member Guilds

The Focus on Fibre Art Studio is now available for use by members and member guilds. Under our arrangement with ACUA, FFAA is managing the west half as a studio/gallery with a kitchenette and washroom. The studio/gallery can easily accommodate up to 12 people for fibre art activities and meetings while practicing COVID-19 physical distancing guidelines and protocols. 

The Studio is available most months to member guilds at no cost, based on the number of members in each guild: under 100 members, 1 day/month; 101-149 members, 1.5 days/month; 150 members and up, 2 days/month. Bookings may be made in 2-hour increments depending on availability. To book the Studio for your guild activities, contact Arlene via email at studio@focusonfibreart.org.

In addition to Studio bookings, we invite members to showcase their fibre art work in our Gallery which has about 40 running feet of wall space with a modern installation system. Bookings for display space can be made for a period of one month for each member or member guild. Contact Arlene at studio@focusonfibreart.org for more information. There number of available dates is limited so book early to secure your preferred dates and times.
