GUILD LECTURE: Indigo Dyeing in Japan
February 20, 2024 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST
NEWTOWN QUILTERS’ GUILD LECTURE: In this talk, I explore how the love of Japanese culture, travel, textiles and “blue and white” came together in a fantastic journey to Japan. This is primarily a travel talk, with an emphasis on Japanese textiles, and a few brief forays into architecture and Japanese cuisine. I will show a quilt as well as paper-based stitched artwork that I created with shibori and indigo dye, and talk about how my particular modern design approach is influenced by Japan.
This lecture is hosted by Newtown Quilters’ Guild – NQG.
