Rebecca Burgess, a weaver, textile artist, native to Fairfax, California, has decided it's time for a change in the clothing industry. She solicited the help of other artists, craftspeople, and farmers to create clothing on a local basis. For one year, Rebecca only wore garments made within 150 miles of Fairfax. She calls this 150 square mile area the Fibershed.
I created short video pieces for Rebecca to share with funders, friends, and potential Fibershed participants. The videos were really well-received, capturing the hand-built spirit of a very special project.
