Visitors to the 2019 Manitoba Fibre Festival will be able to see many craft techniques and tools demonstrated, and even try out a few for themselves.
Members of the local community sharing their skills include the C2Centre for Craft, Carol James Sprang Lady, Felt: Manitoba; Northern Lights Lacemakers, Winnipeg Embroiderers Guild, Manitoba Weavers and Fibre Arts Guild, Red River Ruggers and Prairie Edge Rug Hookers, Textile and Fibre Artists of Manitoba, machine knitters, and spinners.
The Hands of Lugh – Viking Age Living History group demonstrate historically accurate crafts from the Viking age including tablet weaving, spindle spinning, and sprang.
The Miami School Grade 6 class fibre arts program is back again this year to share what they have been working on.
Check out the sheep shearing demonstrations and cooking demonstrations.
Fibre people love to share their passion. You will find inspiration and something new to learn everywhere you look. Seating areas are provided for spinners and knitters to gather round in good company. Bring your current project and plan to stay awhile!
