Woven Symbols, Global Patterns

  • Net Loft Building

Join textile artists Sara Goodman and Mary Zicafoose for a joint lecture exploring weaving, pattern, long-distance collaboration, and ethical production.

Even though Sara and Mary live hundreds of miles apart, they often come together to collaborate on both artistic projects and organizational ones, such as the Goodweave Foundation (an NGO whose mission is to stop child labour in the carpet industry).
