Flower Fairy and Friends Fiber Art Festival

Join Feminist Fiber Art (FFA) and Follow The Honey (FTH) in Harvard Square to celebrate all the magical woodland creatures, bees, and other pollinators through art and music. 

At Follow The Honey from ***1-9pm*** you can peruse their selection of bee products, honey, check out some fiber art, and enjoy some live music. You can check out the set list here: Feminist Fiber Art Fairy Festival Set List

At The Democracy Center from ***2-7pm*** you can look forward to a craft fair featuring miniature fairy sculptures, embroideries of nature and fairies and bees, fiber flower vines, site-specific installations, fresh flower hair garlands for sale, honey punch, a honey tasting, art activities, and a sustainable activity with beeswax.

There will be a suggested donation of $5-10 at FTH for the music fest and a suggested donation of $5-10 at the Democracy Center to fundraise for both of our causes (see below).

We will be raising money for Feminist Fiber Art and Sweet Beginnings. FFA is a woman-directed artist collective and educational organization. FFA organizes exhibits and concerts, including benefits for women’s shelters and feminist charities, and supports artists by creating and sharing their work at local art markets and craft shows as well as on the internet.

Sweet Beginnings offers full-time transitional jobs to citizens returning from incarceration in a green industry—the production and sales of all-natural skin care products featuring its own urban honey under the beeloveTM brand. The company manages apiaries (bee farms) throughout Chicagoland including in North Lawndale, at O’Hare International Airport, Roosevelt University Schaumburg campus, and the Forest Preserve District of Cook County Trailside Museum.
