Introducing Slow Fiber Studios Talks
Over the last several months, our offshoot organization Slow Fiber Studios has been organizing informal get-togethers and open houses to welcome visiting artists and scholars. Not only is it a ripe opportunity to introduce them to the local textile community, it’s also an important vehicle to break open the dialogue and share news of recent projects. Plus, it’s a great excuse for everyone to see each other, old friends and new!
SFS Talks are announced by email. All are welcome to attend. Events have usually taken place in the Bay Area, CA at Yoshiko’s house. And when she’s on the go, they sometimes pop up in different locations – in the States and beyond. When an event is limited capacity, our WSN Web Members get first priority mailings (another reason to join!). The upcoming “Shibori with Shoji” workshop was sold out in less than 24hrs!
If you’re in or near the Washington D.C. area next week, we invite you to join Yoshiko & Louise Meyer of Solar Cooks International in welcoming these leaders of the slow fiber movement: ETHICUS (India); Michel Garcia (France); Ana Lisa Hedstrom (CA); Sara Goodman (NH & Bali).
