Canadian Women in Craft: A Conversation is a symposium inspired by the Threading Black exhibit currently on view at the Alberta Craft Council Gallery in Calgary, AB.

The works by eva birhanu and Simone Elizabeth Saunders included in Threading Black explore fascinating aspects of sculpture, weaving and tufting. Their work also references many themes of asserting your presence on your own terms.

This past year with the pandemic has undoubtedly changed our lives. For many of us, it has forced us to re-evaluate the things that motivate, inspire, and heal. Many of us are on journeys of trying to find the balance between these things. Through Canadian Women in Craft: A Conversation, Threading Black curator Shiemara Hogarth wants to broaden the scope of that conversation by speaking with women in Canadian craft. We can all learn so much from each other!

Join us as we discuss: finding meaning in your craft practice and process (pre-Covid vs. now), selling work, gallery representation, curating.

Featured Panelists are: eva birhanu, Simone Elizabeth Saunders, Natali Rodriguez, Mia Riley, and May Kineyetums.

Moderator: Shiemara Hogarth
