Conscious Consumption: Focus on Linen

  • Textile Museum 55 Centre Avenue Toronto, ON, M5G 2H5 Canada (map)

On Wednesday, November 14, the Textile Museum of Canada will be hosting Patricia Bishop, the founder of TapRoot Fibre Lab in Nova Scotia. Patricia will be giving a lecture in conversation with artist Amanda Rataj; linen from TapRoot Fibre Lab was used in Amanda’s project Two Sides of the Same Coin, which is featured in our current exhibition Crosscurrents: Canada in the Making.

This program continues our focus on themes related to conscious consumption, while providing new perspectives into contemporary textile practices that are featured in our current exhibitions. We hope you can join us for this lecture; please share the attached flyer with those you think may be interested.
