Fibre Arts Workshops


Fibre Arts 2020

Five Day Residential Fibre Arts Retreat

Whanganui Girls College               

20 - 26 April 2020

Cancellation due to Covid-19

After discussion with Whanganui Girls College, the decision has been made to cancel our booking for the Fibre Arts 2020 event due to the issues around the management of COVID-19. As a result, the 2020 Fibre Arts event in Whanganui has unfortunately been cancelled.

This is based on the need to minimise the risk to the students and staff of Whanganui Girls College and to the participants and tutors at Fibre Arts, many of whom fall into the vulnerable cohort for this virus.


We don’t want to put people at risk and the school is concerned about a situation where mandatory quarantine had to occur and the impact that would have on the hostel and school community and our group. 

Our sincere apologies for having to take this action. Whilst we are extremely disappointed as we really enjoy the week with the Fibre Arts NZ community, we think that it is important to act logically and responsibly at what is a time of extreme uncertainty for everyone.

Thanks also for the messages of support we have received, we really appreciate them.
