Forward Thinking: Handmade Products for the Modern World
SFDC Galleria Atrium
In our fast-paced, technology-dependent society, a handmade product has the power to forge connections around the world and touch the soul of the consumer. The challenge facing contemporary designers is how to work with artisans to preserve ancient traditions and techniques while creating something truly new, innovative, and relevant to today’s market. Drawing on her own experiences as a textile designer and business owner, Lori Weitzner will explore the collaborative process of developing a handmade product for the modern world as she travels the globe.
