Crafting Connections: Supporting Artisan Communities—A Panel Discussion
September 27 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Supporting creative communities requires consumers to recognize and covet the unique characteristics of craft. This panel discussion, led by Jennifer Gootman of West Elm, will address the role of brands in developing an appreciation for textiles and communicating the craft story to their customers. Panelists will be Luna Lee, human rights leader at Eileen Fisher, and Abrima Erwiah, co-founder and president at Studio One Eight Nine. It will be moderated by Kate Black of Magnifeco.com.
This event is part of New York Textile Month, a city-wide festival designed to celebrate textile creativity and promote textile awareness.
