Join us on the 2nd Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. for our Guild meeting. We meet at the Arts Warehouse beside the Farmers Market on Murray Ave. We have demos or programs at each meeting by artists to give us tips and techniques on different mediums of art and other things of interest to artists. You can always pick up tips to incorporate into your own work and learn things to increase your skills.

The Anderson Artists Guild will meet on Monday, February 8, starting at 6:30 PM, at the Anderson Arts Center located at 110 Federal Street in Anderson
Our speaker for the evening will be Lynn Robinson, a basket weaver. Here, more or less in her own words, is what Lynn is saying about her presentation and about herself:
"I will talk a little bit about basket weaving and materials. I will bring several baskets for the folks to look at. They will be made with different materials and techniques. I thought I would have a little hands-on time for anyone who wanted to try weaving.
I took my first basket class in 1995 at Piedmont Technical College and was hooked. I had also found classes on ETV for a short period of time. I recorded these classes and replayed them over and over. Finally, I found a basket weavers guild in Greenville where I could take basket classes/workshops and found folks who could answer my questions. I have attended basket weaving workshops in various Southern states and try to find a new technique or material to use in each class."
Guests are welcome. There is no charge.
