This is the core of what FiberLab embraces... fearless experimental learning.

Each month you will receive 20 minutes of video tutorials investigating  intriguing techniques. Needlefelting, dyeing, random weave vessels, rust printing, fabric stamping, sculptural shibori, indigo dyeing, ecoprinting, improvisational embroidery and weaving, phototransfer, marbling, bookmaking and much much more.

There will be a monthly challenge to flex your imagination and share our responses in Discord, our patron-only conversation space. 

Every 3 months we will poll the Master of Play patrons to determine which topics they are interested in covering next.

Includes materials lists and links for resources plus many extras... I like to throw in unexpected treats every once in a while!

First 25 to subscribe to Master of Play, VIP Imaginator or All About You receive a FiberLab sketchbook with a fiberlicious surface texture on the cover and 48 toothy text pages to dig into!

About FiberLab

My favorite thing is bringing people together to make art.

I've been a practicing fiber artist and teacher for 20 years and am often approached by students who are interested in learning more about my process and studio practice. Recognizing a need for a new form of learning and community, I founded FiberLab in 2015 as a place to expand knowledge, skills and, most importantly, creativity. In FiberLab we embrace the adventurous spirit of making – the play, not worrying about the product, just seeing what happens, and knowing we might use it or we might not. 

FiberLab on Patreon engages a broader audience in the freedom of play and self discovery through artmaking. The exclusive vlogs bring you right there with me in the studio. The tutorial videos illuminate hundreds of techniques and relationships develop in the community with the sharing groups and private patron-only page on Discord. Plus, members for 6 months or more will be curated into an online exhibition of work!

Patrons will experience my imagination and knowledge of innovative handwork techniques. Felting, dyeing, shibori, embroidery, tapestry, coiling, rice vessels, surface design, printing, weaving, alternative materials, product reviews and artist interviews are some of the areas we'll be probing.

In exchange, FiberLab on Patreon will allow me to concentrate on teaching, add more time in the studio for R&D, improve the quality of the online content I'll be sharing with patrons and expand our community of creators. I have so much to share with you!

I thank you for visiting my Patreon page. Working with dedicated people who give thought to their expressions and appreciate the importance of this work is fortifying and reminds me of why I’m an artist.

Goals
14 of 100 patrons
When I reach 100 patrons I'll purchase lighting and microphone to improve the quality of my videos.
