What is Fiber Art?
Fiber art is a term used to classify the practice of creating a finished work utilizing natural and/or synthetic fibers. This includes forms of surface design, sculpture, wearable art, textiles, papermaking, and basketry.
The Ann Arbor Fiberarts Guild (AAFG) provides opportunities for fiber artists to meet and exchange ideas, and to learn about fiber art through lectures and workshops. In addition to monthly meetings, the Guild promotes the enjoyment of fiber arts through information and demonstrations. We also sponsor sales and exhibits of our members' work, and participate in the Ann Arbor State Street Area Art Fair.
The AAFG is an educational, not-for-profit club of fiber artists. It was founded in 1956 as a club for weavers and still has a large number of members who are weavers, as well as many members who create other forms of fiber art.
