Description

The Foremothers Café is inspired by Helen Erwin's historical novel Sour Milk in Sheep's Wool, and the Swedish suffrage movement at the turn of the 20th century. Helen will share the stage with world builders Austin (Cause) Caine and Christi Fenison, her collaborators to create the world in VR.

As they will discuss during the session, Helen began by sending Cause and Christi a drawing that she had made on paper with colored pencils. Then they discussed Swedish historical and architectural details, and from there it went; with Helen's historical knowledge and Cause & Christi's world-building skills, magic happened.
