Kristi Farrier


Kristi Farrier is a settler hand papermaker and textile artist. Kristi’s papers are made from plant fibres and repurposed domestic and agricultural textiles diverted from landfills. She has been growing fibre flax since 2018 and finds strong meaning and connection to place and the rhythm of the seasons through a slow craft approach to processing and using these plants in her papermaking practice.

Kristi also creates contemporary textile artworks and draws on her previous career in public policy in her work with art and craft organizations. Kristi is a juried member of the Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design for both hand papermaking and textile art.

Kristi’s lives, and works out of her creative space, Flying Finch Studio, in Middle River, Unama’ki: Cape Breton Island, Mi’kma’ki: Nova Scotia.
