5aug11:00 am- 2:00 pmArtist Demonstration: Fabric Sculptures by Robert CarrierMeredith, NH

Event Details

Join the League of NH Craftsmen – Meredith Fine Craft Gallery on Saturday, August 5th from 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM as Robert Carrier demonstrates the process of creating one of his fabric bird sculptures, with several finished pieces on display and for sale.

Each of Robert’s life-like bird sculptures is entirely hand constructed in a unique process consisting of a wire mesh body covered with hundreds, and often well over a thousand, of fabric “feather” pieces that are individually hand cut and meticulously placed with tweezers and using the aid of magnifying glasses.

Although self taught, Robert has always had a fascination with the creative process, and the ultimate goal of making seemingly impossible ideas become reality. Past endeavors in photography and tile art have provided him with an eye for light and color, and a love of subject—primarily birds. Several years ago Robert became intrigued with fabric and its many color choices, as well as the possibilities for recreating the look, feel, and dimension of feathering.

The mission of the League of NH Craftsmen is to encourage, nurture and promote the creation, use and preservation of fine contemporary and traditional craft through the inspiration and education of artists and the broader community.

All demonstrations are free and open to the public.
