Open House at Damascus Fiber Arts
October 22 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Visit a historic school setting that has taught fiber arts for over 50 years.
The Damascus Fiber Arts School has been teaching fiber arts for over 50 years. The historic building in which the school is located has always been a school in some form since it was built in 1874. Owner Audrey Moore has been teaching at the school since the early 1970s and continues to teach new weavers today. DFAS primarily teaches Navajo-style and tapestry weaving, but also holds workshops on Ravenstail twining (a traditional Native technique of Pacific Northwest), spinning, and dyeing.
At a time when so many art schools are closing their doors, it is important to remember, recognize, and support the ones who continue to stand the test of time. Our school continues to flourish because of the love and dedication of our students. We invite you to visit us for an open house where you can see what we do each week, learn about our history, and ask us questions about our craft.
Located in Damascus, less than 20 miles southeast of downtown Portland.
