Thanks for dropping by,
Some of you may know us from long ago as a group of youth Makers called the "TUTUers" from Elora Public School and Elora Centre for the Arts. We explored identity and shared skills using textile arts as our voice in the world.
When our wings and voices grew stronger we flew into the community as "Sparrows". We built temporary nests in Elora Library, Steph's Home Studio, Studio Kampina~Down the Alley, Studiohere in Fergus and now we have returned home to roost at Elora Centre for the Arts in our very own NEST again (formerly Elora Montessori School).
Such wild and wonderful "Volunteer Birds" we have been so lucky to fly with along the way! We are so thankful for them all!
We have continued to make collaborative textile and mixed media art with donated and found objects, using curiosity to repurpose and mend.
We weave friendships, explore resourcefulness and celebrate diversity while we work. We participate in community projects and events by sharing and wearing our art to inspire and delight!
For many years our community have kindly donated wonderful pre-loved art supplies and found objects for our makers to use and share. Materials that we are unable to use are donated to Groves Hospital New to You in Fergus or shared with other community groups.
We thank you for your support and cheering as we continue to weave art and community together.
SPECIAL THANKS to Fergus~Elora Rotary Clubs, The Elora Lions, The Minarovich Arts Fund, Centre Wellington Community Foundation, Elora Centre for the Arts, Elora Library, 100 CW Men Who Care and the support of our generous community for your kind support over the years!
We flew far because of you!
