The Craft of Travel: Maiwa on the Road

Saturday, October 28, 2017

Doors open at 7:30pm

In 2016, Maiwa turned thirty. During those thirty years, owner Charllotte Kwon has made more than one hundred journeys to meet craftspeople and trade directly with artisans. Sometimes she has travelled alone and sometimes she has travelled with journalists, authors, fellow craftspeople, or Maiwa staff. Join us for this highly visual edition of the Threads Lecture. Charllotte will recount the early challenges of working on the road, how artisan life has changed in the thirty years she has been travelling, and what motivates her to continue to seek out remote villages and craftspeople.
