Gigi Matthews

The Future of Fiber Arts: New Fibers, Textiles, and Sustainability

August 5 @ 7:00 pm, via zoom

It’s time to change the way we make and appreciate textiles.

Join Gigi Matthews, guild member and MAFA presenter, as she discusses the impact Fiber Arts has had on the environment.

As guild members, we deeply appreciate fiber arts.  We love making and collecting textiles. However, over the past 75 years, the textile industry has undergone enormous changes as it switched from plant and animal based materials to oil and chemical based ones. The impact on the environment is significant.

Gigi will be talking about the enormous impact the textile industry has on the planet but also the wonderful new sustainable textiles that are coming down the pipeline. She will educate us around environmental impacts and how to make different choices as we proceed in unity with the earth.
