Come check out some feminist fiber art from around the world! Feminist FiberArt (FFA) is a is an international woman-directed artist collective and educational organization that is headquartered in New York. We organize exhibits, craft fairs, community craft nights, classes, and benefit concerts for women’s shelters and feminist charities. We feature the work of fiber artists from around the world and are building a tight-knit global craftivist community.

FFA is a DIY, multidisciplinary, intersectional, arts community focusing primarily on the versatile medium of fiber art. We illustrate how feminists have been using the medium to subvert its history as “women’s work” in colorful, fun, thought-provoking, and sexually liberated ways.
