Almost anything can be fiber, if you try hard enough. In this class, we’ll explore pineapple fiber, and I don’t mean that silky soft viscose from pineapple. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and get sticky as we literally beat the fiber out of a pineapple and discuss the importance of experimenting with new fibers and techniques. Bring your muscles and a change of clothes!
