Christo Coming to Coaldale

For those who love to plan for the future, I must let you know that Christo plans to drape the Arkansas River right here in our canyon in the summer of 2014. Christo's website.

In keeping with the promotion of the arts, we at Outback Fibers will be planning a series of summer workshops to coordinate with the two weeks in August 2014 when the exhibit will be on display.  It will be two years in the making as construction will encompass some 42 miles of the river.  There will be almost 6 miles of draping in areas where river rafters will be best able to float beneath to view the work.  We are just a short walk from the river, so what could be better than to take in some fresh air, some fiber, some felting, some floating, some fly-fishing... (I just love those "f" words!).

Workshops will be posted to the website closer to the time.
