|Take an adventure from your own backyard!
I spend a lot of time in some pretty wild places, but I also spend a lot of time traveling on my own native turf giving lectures to a variety of audiences. It’s no secret that the only thing I enjoy more than writing about wild fibers is talking about them!
In the lectures listed below I will be discussing the changing role of natural fibers in the modern world and what (if anything), is being done to preserve them. Not only do the talks offer a unique insight into the global picture, but there are plenty of other wild pictures and crazy anecdotes as well.
If you can’t make it to one of the lectures, then perhaps it’s time to schedule a visit to your local fiber groups for a “wild” evening of fun and adventure. I am particularly honored to be speaking at The Snow Leopard Trust in May. Please contact Gina Robertson (Gina@snowleopard.org) to reserve your space, seating is very limited.

On the other hand….
Perhaps you really would prefer a little adventure of your own?
We are taking two tours to India this summer and we have just two spaces left on the first tour only.
If you have ever wondered what it’s like at the second highest motorable pass in the world, this is your opportunity to find out as we set off on a lifetime adventure combing cashmere in the high Himalayas. More details on our website.
