2016 Wool Symposium

For the love of place: hear from Fibershed community members near & far as we come together to understand the true cost of soil to soil textiles and clothing. What goes into making a sweater? Hear perspectives on the cost of raising sheep from members who manage landscapes from small parcels to large grazing operations, including Jill Hackett, Jaime Greydanus, Carleen Weirauch, Aaron Gilliam, and Ryan Mahoney.

From shearing to sweater, listen to a discussion on the cost of knitwear with designers ranging from bespoke garments to mechanized production on the latest technology, including Myrrhia Resneck, Emily Cunetto, and Marlie de Swart.

Reserve tickets today to enjoy engaging presentations and the launch of exciting new projects and resources. Stop by mid-day to see hands-on demonstrations and support Fibershed Producers directly in the Marketplace, both of which are free & open to the public.

November 19th, 9:30 – 5:30 PM in Point Reyes Station. Click here for more information.
