Inspirational, transformative and fun are three words used to describe the fiber577 workshops held at The 577 Foundation in 2016. The fiber577 committee is happy to announce that workshops are being scheduled for June 10-11, 2017 at The 577 Foundation, Perrysburg, OH.
Since 2008, fiber577 has introduced fiber and fiber related mediums to the community through demonstrations, workshops and exhibits. In 2016, the switch to a workshop format proved to be an excellent venue in support of the fiber577 mission: to advance creativity in the fields of fiber and fiber-influenced mixed media. More than 130 students attended classes covering topics such as: needle felting, fabric dyeing, bead work, mixed media collage, cyanotypes, bookmaking and weaving.
We are currently seeking workshop teachers to lead one or two day workshops covering fiber-related topics. We are looking for diverse fiber artist/teachers who will advance the mission of fiber577 through their course submissions. Applications will be accepted until December 5th.
