Ditch the cyber for the fibre

29 June, 2017

Calling all creative types! Time to ditch all things cyber, and get into all things fibre. Creative Fibre is on this month – it’s the best day to engage with the textile artists who call the Canberra region home. Held on Sunday 9 July, visitors will be inspired by the originality of the region’s most talented textile artists showcasing and selling their work.

This year’s Creative Fibre will feature spinning and weaving demonstrations, as well as specialist workshops in arm knitting, embroidery and quilting. You can see products and learn about the processes involved in designing, printing on fabric, creating mixed media homewares and wearable textiles, weaving, knitting, crocheting, hand dyeing fabric and more. Creative Fibre will feature a large range of handcrafted homewares, clothing, hand printed textiles, tie dye kits, wool supplies and more.

Find out more information on the workshops, and book online, via Eventbrite:
