Fibre Arts Festival Australia 2018 | Sunshine Coast, Queensland | Saturday, 17. November 2018

Learn, create and share at The Fibre Arts Festival, 2018.

The festival is not only going to be a celebration of fibre arts and artists but also a gathering of like minded individuals who want to come together to create, share, nurture and connect with others.

This gathering will run for three days and two nights in the beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Queensland. The site is just over 2 hours drive from the Gold Coast and 1 1/2 hours from Brisbane city.

The festival will be filled with three and four hour workshops with fibre artists from Australia and NZ, so you can learn to weave traditional NZ Maori baskets, coil baskets, weave flax flowers, learn the art of felting, macrame, crochet, make wool fibre wall hangings, natural dyeing techniques, create your own paper with natural fibre and many more.

Numbers are strictly limited to 200, so we can allow you and the workshop facilitators to really connect and engage while learning their craft.

You also get to enjoy the beautiful surroundings by swimming or relaxing by the pool, join in our daily yoga sessions, go on a guided walk in the rain forest or just relax under a tree and read a book. We will also have a nightly bonfire, live entertainment, a meet the makers night with wine and cheese, art exhibition, cultural performance and much more.

All accommodation and meals are also provided. Our meals are professionally catered, prepared fresh and sourced locally, so you can feel looked after and nurtured during your stay.

This is more than a festival, this is a place where we want you to make long lasting connections and friendships.
