Annual Pine to Prairie Fiber Arts Trail
April 27 @ 10:00 am- 4:00 pm CDT
Visit the studios of fiber artists along a route connecting Bemidji, Turtle River and Tenstrike, Minnesota.
Witness the creative process of artists in mediums such as weaving, basket making, Native American beading, knotting, macramé, quilting and felting and more.
The diverse culture in this area has a long history of indigenous peoples, voyageurs, settlers and pioneers. Commonalities include a sacred connection to the land and a strong sense of self-reliance.
The textile consciousness in this region shares those values, too. Intentional sustainability restores and keeps people grounded while it also inspires innovation in northern Minnesota fiber traditions.
