Blubird Studio is a female owned fiber art studio based in East Aurora focused on revitalizing the fiber arts through education and raising awareness of slow fashion, conscious consumption and ethical wool production.  Owner and Fiber Artist Tami Fuller teaches fiber arts workshops through MUSEjar in East Aurora, the Rochester Brainery of Rochester, and retreats throughout the Northeast and Pacific Northwest that focus on modernizing the traditional crafts and showing how they can be connected to broader fine art applications. She is a native of Ellicottville and a second generation fiber artisan, who grew up on a working fiber farm. 

Fuller has been indentified as a 2022 culture-maker by Creatives Rebuild NY and has exhibited live art demonstrations for the Borderland Music Festival and Railrider Music Festivals, as well as for Backyard Green Films for PBS as part of work to advance heritage breed conservation and modernize traditional fiber craft at the Hudson Valley Fiber Fiber Festival 2019 in Rhinebeck, N.Y.  Her work has been shown in several group works both locally and nationally and is held in private collection in the United States, Canada and Australia. She has received awards from NY Sheep and Wool (2018) and the Carnegie Art Center (2022). She was designated as a New Emerging Artist for 2022 by the Roycrofters-at-Large Association as a local rising artist of note exhibiting quality of work in keeping with Roycroft standards. 

She is a passionate supporter of women farmers and female centered business, and Blubird produces a small line of ecologically conscious home goods whose goals are to reduce single use plastic consumption and toxic chemicals. She uses a transparent supply chain made from ethically and humanely sourced wool to produce her products and uses her platform to raise awareness of the importance of small agriculture and conscious consumerism.  In 2021, she founded the Roots Collaborative, a project in collaboration with the Borderland Music Festival to raise awareness of the importance of conscious consumerism and ethical consumption featuring products produced exclusively by small, local, female-driven businesses, centered around  theme of eco-consciousness, sustainability and women-based small commerce.  

In addition to private student and group setting instruction, Blubird Studio is also the exclusive local retail outlet for Lost Pond Looms, an artisanal loom company based out of Eden, N.Y. providing handmade looms and tools for fiber artists and students, shipping worldwide. Lost Pond Looms are available locally for cash and carry retail and custom pre-order through the studio located at 21 Elm Street. Retail shopping and studio hours are by appointment at this time.
