It’s been a busy month at the FAFS. We say that often, but it’s true! We’ve hosted two visiting artists – felter Anita Jain and rug weaver Wynne Mattila – for workshops, lectures, and free demonstrations. We’ve welcomed excited new weavers into the studio during two Beginning Weaving classes with FAFS director Phyllis Fredendall. And we learned to make and use inks made from plants with Terri Frew.

We have plenty more programs in store this fall and winter. Check out our schedule below and be sure you’re following us on social media for updates.
