Doris Gives Instruction to Star Student, Kyla
 
February 9, 2017
by Jody Aston, Editor and Publisher

Doris Florig, of SV Magic, recently introduced her woven art to the Rio Dulce community. First, she presented a slideshow, Weaving an Adventure, about how her 40 years practicing the art of weaving intertwine with her sailing adventures. Doris does not make functional pieces, but rather, creates beautiful works of art, in the form of fiber murals and sculptures. Seeing photos of her life-sized mountain goat, complete with a rocky cliff and trees, it boggles the mind how she produces such unique pieces. When not sailing, she and her husband, Dennis Clancy, live in Wyoming. She gains much inspiration from the surrounding environment of the nearby Grand Teton National Park.

After the slide presentation, Doris held a workshop at Tortugal Marina. Excited participants worked through initial fears and learned how to construct a basic piece, using the aboriginal New Zealand finger-weaving technique called Tanika.
