Playing off the “farm to table” concept, the Interlochen Fiber Arts Weekend will focus on Michigan’s growing “farm to fabric” movement and offer multiple hands-on experiences.
Sample what the fiber arts have to offer and learn more about Michigan’s rich fiber resources and opportunities at this celebratory gathering for all skill levels and interests. Playing off the popularity of the “farm to table” concept, the Interlochen Fiber Arts Weekend will focus on Michigan’s growing “farm to fabric” movement. Offering multiple experiences for fiber curious attendees as well as those with more advance fiber arts knowledge, the weekend will open with a panel presentation on Michigan’s growing fiber-shed movement and will then lead into a series of unique, hands-on, mini-workshop sessions on topics such as natural indigo dyeing, sample and gauge garment design, wet felting, beginning drop spindle spinning and drafting for weaving (please visit the daily schedule to learn more about these exciting opportunities--some mini-workshops will have supply fees to be paid directly to the instructor). A Saturday luncheon (lunch is included with registration fee) will feature a presentation on textiles in the world economy and at home. Participants will also have opportunities to enjoy regional vendors and receive one-on-one technical troubleshooting assistance from guest faculty. Join us for this unique event as we focus on, and celebrate, the growing fiber arts movement in Northern Michigan.
