Calling all fiber enthusiasts: the 2018 fiber577 workshops have been announced. Since 2008, The 577 Foundation has hosted fiber577, a weekend dedicated to contemporary and creative takes on fiber and fiber-related art. In 2016, the weekend switched from a competitive exhibition to a weekend of demonstrations, exhibits, and small workshops. While fiber577 won’t be held until June 9-10, registration for the small workshops, held for two full days, is now open. Those interested are encouraged to secure a space. This year’s themes include: 3-D fiber and encaustic, basket making, bogolanfini (mud cloth) dying, marbleizing cloth, and felting.
