Professional Crafts: A Decade in Fiber Invitational Exhibition

June 24 - August 31, 2020  Mary Cornwell Gallery, Creative Arts 

Haywood Community College


As a Professional Crafts Fiber graduate since 2009, you are invited to join a recent-alumni exhibition, to be held at the Mary Cornwell Gallery, Creative Arts Building, Haywood Community College, Clyde, NC from June 24 – August 31, 2020. 
The occasion for this special exhibit is to celebrate a decade of fiber graduates with instructor Amy Putansu. Convergence (Handweavers Guild of America’s biennial conference) will be held in Knoxville, TN in July 2020. Convergence has designed a special post-conference tour for 30 people to visit the Professional Crafts Program, as well as the home studios of Kathrin Weber and Catharine Ellis. The tour will visit HCC on July 29, 2020. Dendel scholars will be featured in the Decade in Fiber exhibit in an effort to thank HGA for the generous support of weaving students through the years.
