WHAT IS FIBRES WEST??
FIBRES WEST Inc. is a not-for-profit association, facilitating inspiration, challenge & creativity within the contemporary textile community
FIBRES WEST events, which take place every three years, offer a fully residential program, providing participants with opportunities for learning and the exchange of ideas with other textile craftspeople. Included is tuition in one of ten
workshops, slide presentations, evening activities, a trade hall, bazaar, textile art displays and installations.
If you would like to see the kinds of workshop on offer at Fibres West events, go here to see the brochure of our 2011event. A gallery of work created by students during the week can be found here. This illustrates the excellent programs synonymous with Fibres West events and the kinds of workshops on offer with national and international tutors who are leaders in their field across a diverse range of textile and fibre art disciplines. Fibres West 2015 will be no exception.
Traditionally, Fibres West workshops run for five days, Monday to Friday, with a free half day on Wednesday afternoon when optional activities are offered. Generally, workshops are limited to 12 participants, ensuring a supportive environment. Most workshops have a materials fee, payable to the tutor on the first day. Students will be advised of workshop requirements on enrolment. Workshops are filled on a first-come first-served basis. If your preferred workshop is full or cancelled, you will be offered a place in your second preference workshop, another workshop or a full refund. The organisers reserve the right to withdraw a workshop if the minimum enrolment of eight is not reached by a certain date.
And in case you were wondering: EVERYONE is WELCOME at a Fibres West event! If you know you have a keen interest and commitment to learning in a creatively charged environment for a whole week amongst like-minded people, and you are fascinated by the teaching or making style of a particular tutor, FIBRES WEST is for you.
