In 2011, Salt Spring Island weaver and teacher Jane Stafford travelled to India to visit rural villages, where the ancient textile arts of dying, weaving and spinning are still practised.
On March 28, Stafford is coming to the Comox Valley with her personal slide show of the trip to benefit these artisans.
She is donating her time to raise money for the Maiwa Foundation, which supports the revival of traditional textile skills in developing countries.
The slide show is sponsored by the Comox Valley Woolgatherers and all proceeds go to the Maiwa Foundation.
The event will start at 11 a.m. at Fallen Alders Hall at 3595 Royston Rd. There will be a $5 donation at the door.
Following the slide show, there will be a sale of clothing, shawls,
scarves and leather goods produced by these artisans.
