Meet a Member: A Series of Fireside Chats with WARP Members 

Our August Meet a Member Fireside Chat is with WARP Board Member Maren Beck. Maren, traveling with her husband and two young sons in 2005, fell in love with rural SE Asian textiles and cultures, and transitioned from being a project manager in the health care field to being a businessperson importing personally selected handcrafted traditional textiles from Laos and Vietnam. She and her husband, Josh Hirschstein, founded Above the Fray: Traditional Hill Tribe Art in 2007 in order to document, support, and introduce to the world the incredible traditional textiles arts and cultures of this region.  Maren and Josh are authors of Silk Weavers of Hill Tribe Laos, published by Thrums Books.  They live in Eugene, Oregon, and Maren leads village textile workshop tours to Laos and Vietnam. Maren is a member of the WARP board of directors, and leads the Artisan Grants Program and the WARP Business Networking Group.

Join us for a chat with Maren for a chance to get to know her even more! Our Fireside Chat with Maren is scheduled for Wednesday, August 10th at 4:00 pm US Eastern Time.

To keep these conversations intimate, each session is limited to 25 participants. Registration is on a first-come-first-served basis. Please only register if you are certain you can attend, to ensure no one misses the opportunity to participate. If the event is full, please register for the waitlist and we will notify you if space opens up. (And if we get a very long waitlist, we will add an additional session.) 

Please note that these programs will be recorded and shared on the password-protected members only section of the WARP website for interested members to watch later. By registering for this event, you agree to be recorded. 

This is a free event, limited to WARP members only. If you would like to attend, please join WARP here
