Event Description

Located just 22 minutes from Chester we are hosting our first artist workshops over two days. Sign up for one or all four sessions and enjoy a day or two creating art at Mill Creek Resort hanging in the shade in the meadow with the talented Oregon artist, Cindy Fowler. 

About Cindy: I was raised in the high desert of southwest Colorado. My mother was a buyer for a trading post and we traveled the reservations searching for native art. I was exposed to the amazing talent among the Indigenous people and that influence can be seen throughout my weavings and colorways. After a stint in Arizona, we moved to Southern Oregon in search of cooler climes and an artist community.  

I found my passion for the fiber arts during college and after 40 years of weaving, that passion is still alive. I work on several 8 harness looms and I dye 90% of my yarn. The colorways are inspired by the landscapes I encounter during my travels. 

My work includes wall-hangings using native woods and hand-dyed cotton. I use a bandsaw to cut the wood which is then woven into the cotton yarn. Other products are hand-dyed scarves/shawls, unique clothing, and dish towels.  Please visit my website for purchasing info.
And, if you are planning a visit to Ashland, I’m an artist with the Lithia Artisans Market.

Go to to sign up for one or all of these amazing workshops. Accommodations available for two nights or camping for an easy over night.
