Fibre Fair is a celebration of all things fibre art with the intent of introducing curious new audiences to the fibre community via markets, workshops, demonstrations and an art show.

Throughout the fair there will be an exhibition of work featuring an array of contemporary Sydney fibre artists working across mediums including weaving, crochet, quilting, knitting, textile design, embroidery, knotting, wrapping and tapestry.

The Fibre community has a big heart and is very welcoming – come join in the festivities where you may learn a new hobby or skill, have the opportunity to see artists at work, have a chit chat over a drink, make new friends and be inspired by all the fibrous art!
