GUILD LECTURE: Indigo Dyeing in Japan
February 8, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EST
PIECEFUL NIGHT QUILTERS’ GUILD OF NORTH TORONTO 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 forrays 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.
