Fibre Arts in a YURT!
Located in beautiful Madeira Park, on the Sunshine Coast and hosted in a collection of yurts, FibreWorks Studio & Gallery showcases the Fibre Arts – basketry, fibre, paper, textiles and wood, created by local, national and international artists.
FibreWorks was founded over a decade ago by the inspirational Yvonne Stowell. Yvonne had the vision, ability and passion to realize her goal of creating a destination for fibre enthusiasts from the Sunshine Coast and beyond. After ten wonderful years Yvonne chose to step away from the daily operations of Fibre Works in order to enjoy time with family and travel.
FibreWorks is now under the direction of Alexis Bach. Her commitment is to ensure the yurts will remain to be a community of supportive creativity for fibre arts on the Sunshine Coast where individuals can be inspired by and instructed in the myriad of expressions that fibre can take form. We welcome you to join us at the yurts to enjoy the exhibits, workshops, ongoing and special events we host each year in our various spaces.
The Gallery ~ A set of French doors draws you into our gallery that showcases the works of local through to international fibre artists in a series of exhibits from April to October. The bright, circular space reflects the energy and colour of the art displayed in the gallery and encourages visitors to explore images, textures and details.
The Workshop ~ provides educational opportunities in different mediums and techniques from Beginner to Master Courses led by professional artists. The workshop space will comfortably fit up to 10 students, allowing for quiet camaraderie with your fellow participants, ample space to create & quality attention and time from your instructor. The deck surrounding all of the yurts allows for a flow of activity, to gain access to our outdoor dye station, work in the sunshine, or just enjoy some fresh air. FibreWorks also provides complimentary morning snacks & a light lunch each day of instruction.
The Studio ~ is open to the public, providing an opportunity to purchase hand dyed fibres, and hand spun yarn, and hosts weekly Weavers Circle, Slow Sundays and our monthly Spin In.
