Fibreworks is comprised of a group of about 50 artists in South Africa who work in fiber and textile mediums. Fibreworks aims to promote fiber / textile as a serious art form, providing both intellectual stimulation and emotional support for its members.
The group was formed in 1997 and since then has had a number of national and international exhibitions. Fibreworks has produced a number of travelling exhibitions of small works including Major Minors I and Major Minors II which have been accompanied by full colour catalogues. These exhibitions have travelled extensively, and have been viewed with great acclaim in the USA, Europe, New Zealand and Australia. Major Minors III was exhibited in the United States of America in 2010.
A number of our members are internationally renowned teachers and fiber / textile artists and our works appear in public and private collections both in South Africa and abroad.
