ACRE’s Fiber Studio was introduced in 2014 and is lofted above the general studio area in The Chalet building. The studio boasts four floor looms and three tabletop looms with all the accessories needed to warp and weave. While we provide a variety of yarn, it is recommended that you supply your own for large projects or if you need a specific color or fiber.
The Fiber Studio is also equipped with sewing machines and materials for sewing, embroidery, and crochet. A Fiber Studio tech will be available to help with fiber-related projects and will provide weaving workshops and other fiber related tutorials to interested residents. Also consider working in conjunction with the printmaking facilities, which are capable of printing on fabric. The newly added dye studio can facilitate working with natural dyes.
