Spotlight on Student Fiber Trends

Amy Putansu

The Southeast Fiber Arts Alliance (SEFAA) and the Professional Crafts - Fibers Program at Haywood Community College have joined forces to organize, promote, and host a juried student exhibition of creative works in fiber art. The exhibition exclusively features the work of post-secondary students to honor and encourage the next generation of fiber artists, and it showcases a wide range of content, material, and techniques with the common threads of originality and passion. This exhibition is the fifth in a series, with previous Spotlight exhibitions held in Greenville NC, Athens GA, Murray KY, and Greenville SC.

Amy Putansu is the fiber instructor at Haywood Community College (HCC, Clyde, NC), in the Professional Craft program. She teaches beginning-to-advanced weaving, dyeing, textile history, and the business of selling crafted objects. Her personal studio practice centers on ocean themes inspired by her home state of Maine. HCC campus has a lovely gallery space, and the craft faculty take turns installing exhibitions, sometimes partnering with other institutions, such as Handweavers Guild of America and Southeast Fiber Arts Alliance.
