12 Sep World Hope Forum – Ireland
I am delighted to announce that on Saturday the 24th of September, I will be taking part in the World Hope Forum Ireland webinar. It’s going to be a special day; I am honoured to share a video presentation about eco printing amongst some of Irelands most talented textile artists and creatives.
In the words of Antonia Reilly-Parker, WHF ambassador for Ireland, “Ireland has a deep tradition of sustainable textile making, from its crisp linens to its woolly tweeds. Spanning fashion, home, craft, folklore and national identity, this special edition of World Hope Forum coincides with the seventh annual New York Textile Month.”
