MoFA, a community sharing a love of fiber
We are weavers, basket makers, spinners, knitters, quilters, paper makers, surface designers and more! While we have varying interests and levels of expertise, we all enthusiastically share the goal of promoting opportunities for all fiber artists wherever they may live and increasing the public awareness of fiber art.

I have been working with fiber most of my life in one form or another. After nearly 30 years as a knitwear designer, I re-discovered my love for tapestry weaving.
I am inspired by nature and, more specifically, the inter-connectedness of life. Living on the edge of the Flint Hills Prairie, I am surrounded by these nurturing connections. Trees, plants, and fungi are some of the subjects I draw from. Tapestry gives me the means to visually express these connections.
Don’t miss a chance to showcase your fiber art! Check out MoFA’s event calendar, before it’s too late.
In this workshop, we will explore mark making styles and techniques as they relate to the creation of language or the suggestion of symbols, text, words, and phrases. We will work primarily with painting and drawing tools, and participants are welcome to explore how these concepts can translate into their own artistic voice and studio practice as fiber artists. Communication is essential to our own visual storytelling; mark, line, and text can offer the artist another way to deepen the message of his/her work.
