MAIWA is proud to present Laura Kemshall, Linda Kemshall and Catherine Nicholls: founders of Thr3fold: The Journal of Creative Vision.
Laura and Linda have arrived from England to join Catherine for the launch of volume 5 of Thr3fold. Copies of the new issue will be on hand and the three authors will be pleased to sign them.
The trio will present a feast of imagery as they talk about the creative process and the inspiration behind the Thr3fold project. They will also be bringing a selection of quilts never before exhibited in Canada. To support the Maiwa Foundation they will be auctioning a number of small items that each has been working on specifically for this event.
Wine, food and refreshments will be served.
