Throughout the course of its history, fiber art has been recognized for its domestic and utilitarian functions. For contemporary fiber artists, materials include: woven fabric, yarn, string, thread, synthetic fiber, and leather. Technical processes can range from conventional skills such as knitting, sewing, or embroidery to more alternative means such as gluing, stapling, or direct application of paint. Fiber art appeals to some because the materials’ texture and versatility help artists produce unique, powerful artwork. It is consistent in its ability to facilitate a vast range of art, craft, and expression.
