Second Langniappe Lecture in the 2016-2017 Season, exclusively for members of the Friends of Folk Art
This presentation will illustrate the challenges involved with buying from Fair Trade Artists and fashion designers- connecting with them, helping them maximize their craftsmanship, and creating opportunties for themselves and us. The result is selling to customers in Santa Fe who will learn about and appreciate the work of folk artists in other parts of the world.
