Kristi Farrier


Kristi Farrier is a hand papermaker and instructor, and textile artist Kristi’s papers are made from plant fibres and repurposed domestic and agricultural textiles that have seemingly outlived their usefulness.

Striving to minimize the environmental impact of her art practice, Kristi mindfully forages plant materials and grows and hand processes her own fibre flax. Growing and processing flax for papermaking connects and grounds Kristi to the rhythm of place and seasons. The textiles she uses are repurposed clothing, linens, and fabric off-cuts which would otherwise end up in landfills. She has also begun to explore other “waste” materials such as old ropes and twines, and fibres foraged from old upholstered furniture.
