Don’t miss this rare opportunity to meet artists from across the globe, purchase a wide variety of artisan-made goods, and get insider knowledge on the Empowering Women: Artisan Cooperatives that Transform Communities exhibit. This event is so big it will spill outside the museum’s walls, in true street-market style!
Leaders from six of the cooperatives featured in the Empowering Women exhibit will travel to the Burke from Rwanda, Morocco, Laos, Nepal, India, and Bolivia to demonstrate their skills in basketry, printing, weaving, and more. Their stunning paintings, wall hangings, baskets, clothing, and jewelry will be available for purchase this weekend only.
Also meet leaders of the local organizations featured in the Burke’s Northwest Connections display. Shop items from the display while you talk to individuals about how they partner with artisans across the globe to bring hand-crafted products to market in the Northwest.
