    Event Description:
    Meredith, NH - The League of New Hampshire Craftsmen ¬- Meredith Fine Craft Gallery is pleased to host a POP~ UP Show with master weaver and fiber artist Doug Masury, Saturday, Dec. 8th from 11 to 2:00. Back by popular demand, Doug participated in November 2017 Open Doors and had such an impressive turnout, he is coming back to offer his fabulous bamboo, silk, and cotton scarves and shawls. Custom dyed by Doug, the colors make one think of world-wide tribal migrations, hues in nature from the Painted Dessert, colors found in lush foliage, the moon rising as the sun sets. For most of his pieces, Doug uses the Scandinavian Rug Weaving Technique called double-stitched Krokbragd. This is a weft-faced design, meaning, no warp threads show through the weaving. All designs are woven from the weft colors. How one throws the shuttles and the colors determines the patterns and the pattern changes. Embellishments, such as weaving decorative chain and beads through the scarf, add to the unique aesthetic of each piece. Join us Saturday, Dec. 8th from 11 to 2:00 and treat yourself to a luxurious experience. The League of NH Craftsmen is a nonprofit arts organization that encourages, nurtures, and promotes the creation, use, and preservation of fine craft through inspiration and education of artists, and the broader community.
