City Hall featured artist: Beryl Hickinbottom

This month's artist featured in the Port Moody City Hall display case is weaver and textile artist, Beryl Hickinbottom.

ruffle scarf

Beryl is a very active local weaver, belonging to two guilds and continuing to learn her craft thru workshops. Her handwoven scarves will amuse the senses thru their texture and adorable mixture of colour. I love her mix of different types of fibre, some of her scarves have a geat sense of playfulness about them. All would enhance an outfit (and make a mum proud to receive one as a gift!)

bookmarks and fibre jewelry

Of particular delight to me personally is the addition of two beautiful fibre jewelry pendants in her display.
Well worth a trip to the display cases!
