Sustainable Fibre Arts Conference 2024 In Gros Morne

The Made in Canada: Sustainable Fibre Arts Conference 2024 is a significant event in the field of fibre arts, focusing on sustainability and ecological craft practices. The conference is scheduled to take place from September 19 to 23, 2024, in Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

The conference is organized by the Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador as part of the provincial Year of the Arts initiative. 

The event aims to explore new and traditional fibre arts techniques and discuss how the fibre art community can contribute to the economic strengths of rural communities.

The conference will feature workshops from nationally renowned fibre instructors, panel discussions, and much more. 

The organizers have called for passionate Canadian fibre artists to share their knowledge and skills during the conference, with a focus on various fibre techniques that emphasize sustainability.

Sustainable textile practices are a central theme of the conference, reflecting the growing adoption of these practices by artists in Canada and around the world. 

The event aims to inspire attendees to develop their own fibre art while promoting sustainability in the craft.

The conference is expected to bring together artists from other Canadian provinces and territories of diverse cultural backgrounds to present a series of workshops, round tables, exhibitions, and sustainable foraging of fibres on the West Coast of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Registration for the conference is open, with limited spots available here
