Fibre Arts

 

Fibre Arts Group

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.

 

SCHEDULE FOR FIBRE ARTS BUNCH: 

Meetings are generally on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month from 10 am to 3 pm.  Bring a lunch; tea and coffee are available.  The Arts Centre is open 9 am to 4 pm for extended work time.

The objective of FAB is to explore the creative use of fibre, fabrics and embellishments in the creation of Fibre Art.  Members share interests and skills with one another on a regular basis.  Participants are asked to contribute to the upkeep of the wonderful room we use by regularly putting $2 in the toonie box. To belong to FAB, you just need to be a member of the ICAC; new members are always welcome.
