Cultural Craft - Melding Traditions with Creativity

We are thrilled to invite you to an enriching Fiberside Chat with Francoise Danoy! This lecture takes attendees on a journey through the crossroads of cultural preservation and artistic innovation, using Maaori art forms as a lens. The world of fiber arts is vast, with an intricate tapestry of traditions and techniques passed down through generations. But how do we ensure that these traditions are preserved while allowing space for personal creativity? Register now and weave your thread into the ongoing tapestry of fiber arts.
