THE FUTURE OF HANDMADE TEXTILES
an illustrated talk with Jim Gaffney

What are the prospects for the makers, and the traditional way of life represented by such wonderful textiles?  We’ll look at the past and possible future solutions in this thought provoking talk illustrated with some of our very best textiles from around the world.
