About SFS

Slow Fiber Studios is founded on a simple intention: to offer real-world insight into the multifaceted and holistic practice of textile-making. A program of World Shibori Network, affiliated with and, Slow Fiber Studios™ offers a forum to present lectures, demonstrations and dynamic, hands-on workshops by master artisans, artists, scholars, and specialists from diverse areas of the world where textile culture runs deep — Brazil, China, France, India, Japan, Mexico, and the UK. We are committed to providing authentic information, reciprocal dialogs, networking and building a community of like-minded people. We believe the best way to understand a philosophy is to see it being lived. Slow Fiber Studios™ gets to the heart of ‘the making of things’.
