The Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador through the provincial Year of the Arts initiative has the pleasure to announce the Made in Canada: Sustainable Fibre Arts Conference 2024. The Conference is taking place from September 19 to 23, 2024, in Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
Sustainability is far from a new concept. Sustainable textile practices are evolving and being adopted by hundreds of artists in Canada and across the Globe. The conference aims to reach themes of sustainable and ecological craft practices and materials, and how sustainability can support rural and urban craft communities and move forward in the craft industry with sustainable planning within our discussions and workshops. It will consist of workshops from nationally renowned fibre instructors, panel discussions and much more! This event is bound to inspire you to develop your own fibre art while leaving you in love with Newfoundland and Labrador!
