Blue Ridge Craft Trails Month Craft Demonstration

As part of the Blue Ridge Craft Trails Month, get ready to meet one of Firefly Craft Gallery’s most talented couples, Joyce and Mark Henneberry! Joyce and Mark will both demonstrate their crafts and they are both happy to answer questions while demonstrating. Takes place at Firefly Craft Gallery in Flat Rock. Refreshments will be served.

Joyce is a very talented fiber fusion artist. Fiber fusion is a process of preparing fabric and other fibers with an adherent that will fuse hundreds of small pieces of fiber to become one large tapis. Joyce has a library of fabrics in her Brevard studio. She begins pulling those fabrics off the shelves much like someone doing research in a library might pull books off the shelves. She auditions the fabrics to see what will work and what won’t. Joyce then begins the process of preparing the fabrics for the piece of art she is creating. Each piece of fiber is cut by hand in a unique shape to convey the desired feeling of the object it is helping to create. The finished piece will go through a two-step fusion process to permanently adhere the hundreds of small pieces to become the final tapis. Each piece of art comprises standard cottons and batiks blended with original, hand-dyed fibers that have been double-dyed for vibrant colors. Each finished piece of art is a one-of-a-kind, hand-signed original.

Mark Henneberry is another one of Firefly Craft Gallery’s talented artists. Mark has been fascinated with wood carving from childhood. As a child he whittled and made walking sticks, and as an adult he developed a deep interest in mountain spirit carving and historic folk art carving. Mark carves by hand in the traditional mountain style using chisels, pocketknives, and wooden mallets. Mark carves found wood, grown in the mountains of North Carolina and upstate South Carolina. Mark’s carvings include mountain wood spirits, character carvings, wooden spoons, walking sticks, and Santa Claus carvings.
