Here in the West, we have a long history of working with fiber — from the hunting culture of Native American tribes to today’s diverse upcycling, from leatherwork to fine arts installations.
Whether you are a practitioner of the fiber arts — someone who just admires fiber work — or someone who wants to learn — we’ve gathered a host of materials to fill your trip. Whether you’re adding to your stash or visiting a ranch or farm that raises fiber animals — use the Fiber Trails sites to create a unique experience for yourself or for your traveling companions. (Hint: There’s nothing like a baby lamb to fascinate a child!)
And if you feel like an adventure, we’ll take you off the beaten path to find those who ply their art in unexpected ways and places. (Hint: Of course, most of Wyoming is off the beaten path — and that’s what’s great about it! You can see how this closeness to the natural world, its wildlife, its colors, skies, all influence the handwork of the people.)
But if you’re feeling the need for a tranquil museum and gallery settings, we’ll show you the way to some big jewels as well as some little gems.
