Presented by Linda Cortright, editor, Wild Fibers Magazine

In Myanmar (formerly Burma), villagers spin lotus stalks into a unique fiber once used for monks’ robes and now prized by Italian fashion designers. Known for her lively talks and stunning photography of indigenous peoples, Cortright weaves the tale of a faraway and fascinating culture.

Snow date: Wednesday, February 27.
