What Counts as Fibre Art?

Fibre art is incredibly diverse and our definition is continuously shifting. We are open-minded. Our website has hundreds of examples of fibre art work located under Artist Interviews and Artwork.

Generally fibre art is made from perishable materials that use traditional techniques that include, sewing, tapestry and papermaking. However, more and more artists are using synthetic materials.
