Library Creatives Artist Talk: The Fiber Arts in Papua New Guinea
About the Event
Papua New Guinea is a country filled with cultural and biological diversity and the local fiber art scene is certainly a testament to that. Bilas and Bilums are decorative and basket-weaving techniques using natural plants, dyes and animal materials native to Papua New Guinea. Join Telaraña Fiber Arts Guild artist, Betz Frederick, and her husband Harold Frederick as they present imagery and artifacts of fiber art techniques using the natural environment of the southwestern Pacific.
This event is paired with Scottsdale Public Library’s Hometown Happy Hour series. Join us for “mocktails” and light snacks at 5 p.m. in the Copper Gallery before the presentation begins at 5:30 p.m. in the auditorium.
