Indigo Lion Pause: Book Launch Reception

Last fall twenty-two of us paused together to hold handmade craft and write. We discovered our inner prose and glimpsed into another part of the globe. Now it all comes together in a collection of the inspired writings and many photos in the book, Curating Beautiful Conversations: what happens when you hold handmade craft in your hands?

Join us for a gathering of readings, new photos and videos, and find out what happened when we shared a draft of the book with artisan enterprises and weavers on Indigo Lion's recent trip back to Cambodia and Laos.

Book specifications: 8'x10', 45 pages, softcover, full color printing. Get your copy of the book at the event. All writers get a discount! 

Handmade textiles accessories and accents from Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar that inspired the writings will also be available for purchase.
