Tilles Park is one of the go-to places in St. Louis to view Christmas Lights. Please join us for the 2018 Winter Wonderland Walk through Tilles Park. The park only has a few walking tours, so this is a rare opportunity. These tickets were donated to our Meetup and we have a limited number of spaces (20) so please sign up early. This will be for members of our meetup group only. If you wish to bring other guests, please go to the St. Louis County Parks website to purchase additional tickets.
Parking information and other details will be available and posted on the meetup after October 31. We will distribute the wrist bands that allow entry to the park at the November meeting or at the gate the night of the event.
Since we are limited to 20 people for the tour, I would ask that anyone wishing to take advantage of this unique opportunity signs up through our Meet Up page. They can always leave the group if they wish after the tour. The spots are filling up quickly. Once 20 people sign up, Meet Up will create a waiting list.

Throughout history, indigo has been one of the most widely used plant dyes for creating blue cloth. In this workshop, you will learn Itajime Shibori, and dip your fabric into the indigo dye to create rich, deep shades of blue. Itajime Shibori involves systematically folding the fabric and clamping it with tiles to create geometric repeat patterns. We will dye both cotton and silk fabric, and students will go home with two beautiful finished hand-dyed scarves.
Supply fee included.
The workshop will introduce methods of milling lumber with a table saw to create effective picture frames. Participants will receive hands-on instruction and demonstrations of techniques used to develop simple, contemporary moulding profiles. Students will make a 5"x7" frame.
Supply fee included. Please bring safety goggles and gloves if you own them.

Sharon is going to have a trunk show of her magnificent fabric items at the opening of “The Essence of Form,” on November 16. She is a renowned fiber artist and taught regularly in Paris and Japan for a number of years. Sharon uses color to express the individuality and universality of experience. She especially enjoys the process of layering color upon color in the art of shibori as it is used with fiber reactive dyes. There will be many items for sale on this night! To learn more about Sharon visit her website at: http://sharonkilfoyle.com/
Join us for the opening of “The Essence of Form.” Doors open at 5p with Juror’s talk at 6p and awards presentation to follow. This exhibition contains artwork that detects the structure of the physical world both seen and unseen, imagined and observed. Juror, Fran Skiles has selected an all-media exhibition that investigates form in context of both abstraction and realism, from well-timed photographs, to the manipulation of paint, drawing media, fabric and clay.
Diversified Labs is a local printer and uses state of the art equipment to print your photos on just about any type of medium. During this tour we will learn about their methods and the considerations you should take into account when printing. This is a very informal tour and we will be able to ask questions as we are touring. This event is geared towards anyone who either already prints their photos or someone who may want to print them some day. No need to bring anything other than yourself. We are limited to 30 attendees so sign up early!
Since we are limited to 30 people for the tour, please RSVP through Meet Up. You can always leave the group if you wish after the tour. Once 30 people sign up, Meet Up will create a waiting list. RSVP at: https://www.meetup.com/Photography-Section-Saint-louis-Artist-Guild/
