Join us for the debut of ScaleHouse’s first interactive High Fiber Arts Symposium.
Together, with artists working on the cutting edge of traditional craft, we will consider the ways in which the handmade has been influenced by technology and explore how the expressive needs of the artist have caused the textile arts to transcend their humble origins. Selected visiting artists and local artists/makers known for crossing the boundary from the hand made into fine art will join in art conversations and presentations and lead hands-on workshops; designers and creators of wearable art and accessories as well as other fiber artisans will offer their wares at a Marketplace Pop-up.
The Symposium ends with an evening of festivities and a Fashion Runway finale.
Located in the Old Mill District
