Textile Intersections – Sustainability and Technology Conference

Textile Intersections – Sustainability and Technology Conference

When:  September 26 and 27, 2015
Where: Granville Island Hotel, Granville Island, Vancouver, BC
Click here to Register to attend the Conference     
(Registration closes July 20)

The Canadian Craft Federation has designated 2015 as the Year of the Craft.  We want to celebrate it with all BC and Yukon textile artists and crafters.

Looking to the land, re-using materials and adapting technologies to serve the innovative and creative spirit is what working in textiles has always represented.  We are hoping you will join us for two days in September to immerse yourself in the passion to create and to learn and network.

Note: though it says BC and Yukon artists, there's no reason you couldn't attend as an Albertan!
