A round-up of goings-on in fibre and textile arts and crafts across Canada.
Farmer, activist and friend-of-the-magazine Anna Hunter of Long Way Homestead has launched an online lecture series on the challenges and opportunities for regenerative, sustainable textile production within our regional and national landbase(s). The first two events are scheduled for May. On May 2nd, five Canadian fibre farmers are gathering to speak about marketing farm yarn and wool products. On May 16th, Anna will speak on “The True Cost of Wool: Transparency and Traceability in the Canadian Wool Industry”—a deep dive into the Canadian wool industry and focus on the land, animals, labourers, mills and transport of our wool.
Our own Kate and her ebook, Custom-Fit Hats, are featured in this Globe and Mail article about the rise of DIY book publishing here in Canada. [Article available to Globe subscribers.]
