RESEARCH

Partnering with farmers, artists, designers, fiber folks, and scientists we are studying soil to soil methods. Starting from the seed or raw material we explore from farm to fabric – then back to farm.

WORKSHOPS

We facilitate hands-on workshops and learning experiences for people of all ages and backgrounds. We hold space for participants to explore their inherent creativity through handcrafted textiles.

RESIDENCY

Integrate cloth that heals into your practice. Residents receive private sessions, work on a collaborative project, and facilitate a carefully crafted workshop during their stay at the Fiberhouse.

More and more people understand farm to table when it comes to their food, we explore from farm to fabric.

 

Our current research blurs the lines between local food and fashion supply chains. Using edible mushrooms, we are decomposing textile waste. We extract pigment from plants and food waste. Engage with our ongoing research through the pages of our WORKBOOK SERIES. Our workbooks aim to be accessible, with clearly laid out instructions and hand drawn illustrations.

We facilitate hands-on learning experiences for you, your team, or your class that explore closed-loop textile creation.

 

Topics range from natural dyeing with flowers, food waste, and indigo – to felting, weaving, and mending. Schedule a private session or join us for a small group workshop in our studio or at one of our partner locations. Have an idea for a workshop? REACH OUT!

 
 
 

Stay with us for a week-long residency that explores the threads that connect us.

 

Through the Fiberhouse Residency we hold space for individuals interested in creating cloth that heals with us in our Brooklyn based live/work studio. Residents will have access to about 400 sq ft of studio space and a place to stay while they develop a collaborative project. This week-long stay culminates in a workshop to be hosted at the Fiberhouse that relates to each residents’ personal practice.
