This exhibition encourages participation from artists in all media who wish to explore fiber related work. Since 1982 the Fiber Hawaii biennial exhibit has used the tag line “in, of or about fiber” to invite artists to consider fiber and textile techniques as an idea as well as a media. Fiber Hawaii 2022 entries will be juried by well-known fashion designer and creative consultant, Amos Kotomori. Amos is sure to bring a unique sense of style to the Fiber exhibit! He has sent us a poetic statement to inspire our work:
manifest your vision.
create bodies by being in the moment, capturing each breath and telling your story.
trust the energy within to inspire all who dare to feel.
let the world see who you are.
We are excited to announce that our 2022 exhibition will travel from Oʻahu to Maui! The exhibition will begin at the Downtown Art Center and then travel to the Schafer International Gallery, Maui Arts & Cultural Center through December.

2022 RAKU HO'OLAULE'A AT CAMP MOKULE’IA UPDATE
Dear Hawaii Craftsmen Members and Raku Enthusiasts,
I regret that we will again push our Raku Ho`olaule`a event further into the future. Whereas we would be working outside and City & County restrictions have been lifted, many of the ceramic studios and artist workspaces continue to have restricted and no access. Because a large share of our groups are locked out of their spaces and unable to produce work, we have decided to plan our next Raku Ho`olaule`a for March 23 - 26 or March 24 - 27, 2023.
This will give everyone time to create more work, be healthy and join in in the planning process to make our reunion Raku something special.
Feel free to contact me, any of the group leaders or our Chairs: Valerie Yokoyma and Drew Matsumoto through firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions and suggestions and to volunteer to help plan.
Mahalo for your patience, support and understanding.
