The San Juan Ridge Tapestry Project is a community art project illustrating the history and landscape of the local San Juan Ridge. On Saturday, January 13th at 2pm at Lucchesi Tasting Room in Grass Valley there will be a demonstration of the process, techniques and materials used to create this unique community art treasure. The demonstration will be followed by an audience question and answer session.

The Ridge Tapestry Project began in 2005 as a way to document the important events of the last 45 years on the San Juan Ridge. Inspired by the Bayeaux Tapestry, Ridge resident Marsha Stone envisioned it as a way to express gratitude to the fascinating and dynamic community she lived in and thought it would be fun to work on a group project, exchange stories and get to know new people. Marsha says, “I’ve been more than rewarded with new friendships and the satisfaction of helping to make something beautiful for our community.”

The original plan was to make a tapestry to fill every space between the doors and windows in the North Columbia Schoolhouse Cultural Center. The group is now working on their twelfth tapestry and it will complete the project.

Two of the finished tapestries will be on display during this event at Lucchesi Tasting Room: “The Blue Cradle” and “Don’t Mine our Water.” For the art demo, stitchers will be working on “The Forest”. This art demo is one of the special events being offered by South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) during the 2018 Wild & Scenic Film Festival. The event is free, and wine will be available for purchase.
