Workshops

For the third year, several hands-on workshops will be taking place in conjunction with Fibrefest. This is your chance to roll up your sleeves and get felting, weaving or hooking with talented fibre artists and vendors. There’s a terrific variety of workshops — some for adults and some for children; some using traditional materials and techniques, and others that are not-so-traditional. All of them will celebrate the colours, textures and diverse crafts that create beauty from natural fibres.

Workshops run on Thursday through to Sunday (September 5–8) at both the museum and the arena, and registration fees include free admission to the festival. Advance registration is required and some workshops may need you to bring some of your own supplies, so do check out the website and sign up early to avoid disappointment!

For more information please email Shelagh Ryan at fibrefestworkshop@mvtm.ca
