Fiber Arts

Fiber arts is a fun and diverse practice with deep historical roots. In the modern day we still see this art form in practice on the catwalk and in our grandparent’s living rooms, but with the right instruction, this art practice has something for everyone. With resources for knitting, sewing, felting, silk painting, and more, the Fiber Arts studio allows you to dip your toes into the world of textiles, or dive in headfirst.
