SEPTEMBER 8-11, 2022
For this year’s Fiber College, we’re excited to offer a choice of six, intensive four-day workshops that will run simultaneously from Thursday through Sunday, the week after Labor Day at the award-winning Searsport Shores Ocean Campground and art facility in Mid-Coast Maine. Your chosen workshop will consist of at least 18 hours of personalized instruction that will be the core of a unique retreat experience. You'll be sharing your meals and campfires with all of our talented teachers and your fellow makers. There will be plenty of time to work or daydream in the garden and on our beach. This is your time to renew your creative energy, confidence, and passion, carrying it with you long after we wave goodbye.
For the second year running, we have created a program that reflects a few of what we call the Fiber College ‘touchstones’. We don’t literally pile them on the window sill, but they are the values, experiences, and beliefs that we always try to keep in view. They help us focus, stay grounded, and keep moving forward.
Our 2022 workshops are all about the need for restoration and renewal - the importance of trying new things, actively fostering creativity, having the courage to experiment, and taking the time to deepen our connection with the natural world, and with each other.
Each workshop offers an immersive experience and is limited to 12 students so you can work at your own pace and skill level with lots of help from your (awesome!) instructor and fellow students. As a grand finale, on Sunday afternoon you'll enjoy a private, curated shopping experience where you'll be able to buy artwork, books, and supplies from your instructors, talented fellow students, and other makers from our Fiber College world. Let’s dive in.
