Surface design is the coloring, patterning, structuring and transformation of fabric, fiber and other materials.
The purpose of the Guild is to increase community awareness of surface design and its value in our lives.
As a group, we exchange information on such creative processes as dyeing, painting, printing, stitching, embellishing, quilting, weaving, knitting, felting, beading, basket making, polymer clay, crochet and papermaking.
We also offer educational and experimental venues, supporting individual artistic creativity while promoting an attitude of mutual respect and exchange in all areas of surface design.
Membership in the Tampa Bay Surface Design Guild is open to anyone with an interest in surface design of any variety. All levels of interest and expertise are welcome.
We meet the 2nd Monday of each month.
