Faux Frau Steven Frost and Maker space director Janet held court with some amazing new Faux Fraus at the Boulder Maker Faire They worked 9-5 Saturday and Sunday Oct 8th and 9th making masks from denim and cut up recycled old Halloween fabrics we found. No Super Heroes, no princesses, just kids learning to sew! Steven embodied Frau Fibers production techniques by standardizing the sizes of masks and ways to make. Hiding feathers that a mom whipped out because it was slowing down “production.”
and Steven made this custom apron for one of the volunteers.
Knock off Knit Dress by Faux Frau Krista. This garment was patterned, cut and sewn in one session!
Over sized men’s shirt remake by Faux Frau Anna. The sleeves were used to make detachable pockets.
Hoody Patch by unnamed participant. Old t-shirts were used to make this one of a kind garment.

My fellow anarchists, socialists, communists and revolutionaries, you are invited to join Frau Fiber and Kate Dollenmayer (filmmaker and film archivist at the Wende Museum of Cold War) in celebrating laborers and worker’s movements from around the world! Our celebration will feature; scarf making, egg decorating, hand message, communist educational films and snacks appropriate for the occasion.
5-6 pm, Frau Fiber will lead a worker’s scarf making workshop.
6-7 pm, Kate will project a 1954 film demonstrating traditional Easter egg decoration among the Sorbs, a Slavic culture in eastern Germany and Poland. This technique is similar to Pysanky, the Ukrainian method of Easter egg decoration. May 1st also marks Eastern Orthodox Easter (Pascha) this year, we’ll try our hand at pysanky too.
7-8 pm, Frau Fiber will lead a workshop on hand massage to heal hard working hands.
8-9 pm, will project films from the Wende Museum’s collection of communist educational and industrial media and home movies. We’ll watch short films made for television in the 1970s and 1980s to introduce young people to trades in the textile industry.
