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.

FEATURED ARTIST

Sharon Eley

A higher being, nature and organic shapes are themes that move through my art. Using a holistic approach I attempt to express an inner energy, a sense of peace in body and soul, and a connection to an inner and higher spirit – a connection with nature and the universe. I have an affinity for trees and leaves and for an ethereal “flow” in my art whether working with fabric, paint or papers. My medium covers a variety of hand dyed and acrylic painted papers and fabrics, and a variety of mediums, often evolving into collage. My latest experiments have included painting on tissue paper and transferring painted images from plastic to paper. I am continuously experimenting with surface design techniques to stretch the imagination of what can be designed or imagined on different surfaces.

FEATURED EXHIBITS

Don’t miss a chance to showcase your fiber art! Check out MoFA’s event calendar, before it’s too late.

Speaking of Fibers 2019! is a Missouri Fiber Artists (MoFA) members’ biennial; juried exhibit, exploring fiber forms and materials. Our 2019 exhibit theme is “Stories of Importance ”. More info

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.
