Fiber Arts Division

The goal of the fiber division is to recognize and appreciate the unique qualities and characteristics of various natural fibers and encourage artistic and craft disciplines which utilize these fibers.


Basket making is the 2022 celebrated handicraft and plant/bast fibers are the featured fiber.


OFFF would like to thank our outgoing fiber arts chair, Naomi Royle, for her decade of chairing the fiber arts division! We look forward to seeing Naomi around enjoying the festival she has done so much for. Cheers!
