Espanola Fibre Arts Festival

What is the Espanola Fibre Arts Festival?
Oct 16-18, 2015

Espanola is a community in Northern Ontario, near Sudbury. They have taken on this fantastic festival that will occur Oct. 16 - 18, 2015. This collaborative project between the Espanola Public Library and the Espanola Fibre Arts Festival is an amazing undertaking. They are looking for "art"-work from anyone interested in participating so they can create a massive coral reef structure.
Not only are they hoping to bring together "like-minded" individuals to create art together, but they've added the benefit of increasing awareness to the plight of the coral reefs in our world that are being threatened by "global warming and pollution".
This community meets at the Espanola Library, where a person can learn to knit, crochet and other techniques that might be used to make this display.
