Introducing Andean Textile Talks
Mark your calendars for our new Andean Textile Talks series starting February 2021! Led by subject matter experts, these six bi-monthly virtual conversations (via Zoom) will cover topics such as Andean culture, textile traditions, historical and current events, and even food or drink. The hour-long webinars are $10 and include a presentation followed by a Q&A.
February 9, 2021 | 7-8pm (EST): Following the Thread
Our first Textile Talk features Following the Thread, a 25-minute documentary which presents some of the communities affiliated with CTTC and includes special celebrations and ceremonies, rituals with the animals (llamas and sheep), natural dyeing processes, weaving and knitting demonstrations, and much more. The hour-long online program via Zoom will begin with an interview of film-maker Kathy Brew, followed by a viewing of the documentary, and a Q&A afterwards.LEARN MORE
