First Nations and Inuit creators have been making fibre and textile works since long before settlers came to this land. Here we feature works by contemporary Indigenous fibre, textile and bead artists, and explorations of opportunities to respectfully learn.
We at Digits & Threads intend for this area of our magazine to continually grow, and we encourage Indigenous artists and writers to contact us about your work or with feature proposals.
