What is Fibre Art?

Fibre Art is created using natural or synthetic fibres and traditional techniques like sewing and weaving to create what is commonly described as “Fibre Art”

Beading work, Braiding, Embroidery, Felting, Mixed-media, Fabric painting, and Spun fibres can all come into play in the creation of Fibre Art.
