Sheep herding is an integral part of Arizona history and indigenous communities have long-standing traditions of herding sheep and using their wool to create beautiful textiles. At the Flag Wool and Fiber Festival festival, artisans and demonstrators connect the history to the art through their textiles and fiber arts creations. The festival, held June 3-4 at the Pioneer Museum in Flagstaff (2340 N. Fort Valley Rd.) brings together wool growers, artisans and fiber-related vendors to share their knowledge and experience creating goods using natural materials grown in Arizona. Educational demonstrations are ongoing throughout the festival, and more in-depth workshops are offered by experienced teachers on both Saturday and Sunday.
