Sharing fiber art skills is integral to the Fiber Arts Collective mission.

Through outreach programs we introduce and foster art expression and appreciation to our community. Our outreach programs teach skills and appreciation for a wide variety of fiber arts to young people in the community. Additionally, these programs teach skills that can earn income and promote inter-generational sharing of fiber art skills.

Part of our mission with SWFAC is sharing our fiber art skills, especially with youth to encourage the next generation of fiber artists. In 2024, SWFAC will partner with the Silver City and Bayard Public Libraries during their summer programs. This will allow us to share our fiber art skills with a large group of youth. We will be at the Silver City Public Library on June 20 and 27th. On June 20th, Annette Rubino-Buckley will lead youth in fabric painting bandanas. On June 27th, Shannon Curry will lead youth in puppet making!
