This local artist takes you through the exploration and development of her play with warp and weft. After taking a textile arts class at CSU, Chico in 1979, Fisher’s journey began. In 1980 she went to Scotland to study with David Russell Gurney in Turriff, Scotland. There she learned the craft of mastering the loom. This experience gave her the freedom to blend her creative ideas with traditional techniques. It was after weaving in Scotland that Fisher created her business, The Flying Shuttle, now known as Sandy Fisher Woven. As you will see in the show, Fisher’s passion for color and texture has become her signature mark. Her work has been shown throughout the US, Canada, Europe, and Japan marketing at national juried shows to word of mouth both locally and beyond.
