Opening January 2, 2010
The Astoria Fiber Arts Academy welcomes visitors to its location in downtown Astoria, Oregon.
Visitors will find several communal work areas - one for weavers and their looms, and a second area for hand-held crafts such as knitting, crocheting, and embroidery.
The Academy has a retail outlet where one can purchase locally dyed yarns as well as products created by local craftspersons.
Classes are offered in over nine categories of fiber arts. Immersion classes are weekend long sessions designed for both local residents and visitors to the area, with options to stay in local hotels within walking distance of the academy. Individual classes are offered in specialized topics.
