Overview

It’s the 10th Anniversary of Fiber Week (formerly Northern Fibers Retreat) and we’re celebrating with an entire week of hands-on textile exploration! Choose from a dozen multi-day courses in everything from felting to weaving to spinning, dyeing, knitting and more. 

Then, plan to attend Fiber Friday, a new feature in 2020. On February 14, we’ll host a day of speakers, demonstrations, open studios and community gatherings free for all enrolled students. This popular model, borrowed from our Wood Week and Basket Week, allows students and instructors alike the opportunity to meet one another, expand their interests and enjoy our cozy campus learning atmosphere. Come early or stay late; you won’t want to miss Fiber Friday!

Stay tuned! Full schedule available in early 2020.

Fiber Week courses are available for registration — register now!
