While deepening her understanding of natural dyeing and playing with different dye materials and colourways, Francesca Carella Arfinengo considers questions about reciprocity and settler responsibilities arise. Speaking from her perspective as a white latinx first generation immigrant and settler, she will discuss connections between foraging, land back calls, appropriation in craft practices and living in relationship with the peoples who have protected and passed down the knowledge of natural dyeing. Co-Sponsored by Manitoba Craft Council, MAWA Mentoring Artists for Women's Art.

Manitoba Craft Council

The Manitoba Craft Council is for people who love contemporary craft: professional artists and artisans, collectors and connoisseurs, DIYers and armchair enthusiasts. It’s for people who value the originality and quality of the handmade, who find meaning in making. It’s for the dreamers and schemers who seek to reinterpret the material and cultural traditions of the past through a contemporary lens. It’s for people who have to forge, carve, weave, fold, sculpt, knit. And for their friends and supporters. It’s for you. See, smell, touch, explore the myriad expressions of contemporary craft in Manitoba and be part of a community that is shaped, motivated, and defined by its love of craft.
