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.
Since then, hundreds of students have enjoyed classes covering topics such as: eco-printing, indigo-dyeing, felting, silk painting, fabric dyeing, bead work, mixed media collage, cyanotypes, bookmaking, weaving and more! The fiber577 committee is happy to announce that workshops are being scheduled for June 8-10, 2018.
We are currently seeking instructors for the 2018 weekend workshop – application deadline is November 27, 2017.
