Often referring to work whose materials consist of natural or synthetic fibers and fabrics, fiber art encompasses a vast array of techniques including weaving, knitting, nuno felting, quilting and hand-dyed silk scarves. Whether functional or decorative, modern fiber artists incorporate new materials, technologies and methods to design and create innovative art. From using a loom to produce textiles by interlacing long threads together to nuno felting that involves bonding loose fibers to sheer fabric creating a felt, there are many different ways to produce stunning textiles. In addition to forming the fabric itself, many fiber artists also focus on creating stunning colors and designs on the surface of a cloth. Fiber artists can employ many different techniques to achieve surface design. One such method, hand dying, involves using natural or powdered dyes in a multitude of colors. Patterns can be created in the cloth by using mechanical resist techniques that involve shaping and compressing the fabric before submerging it in a liquid dye bath, so portions of it resist the dye. An endless variety of results can be achieved with this method.
