Fibershed’s Community Building program has a track record of establishing successful working relationships between artisans and farmers throughout the region, and currently implements opportunities to connect these artisans and farmers with individuals, students, and school groups in order to establish a strong social network that can provide learning opportunities that ensure the passing down of essential skills and knowledge.
The community building program is designed to promote a sustainable social web through events, workshops, and symposiums that are designed to share, disseminate, and innovate best soil to skin practices within our Fibershed.
Future events and opportunities will include:
• Skill Share Days
• Fiber Symposiums
• Farm & Studio Days
• Fibershed Fashion Shows
