The Art of Japanese Shibori with Lynne Brotman
Join us for the first of many installments of our partnership with the Austin School of Fiber Arts!
Lynne Brotman is a veteran Shibori Artist who will speak on the history of this Japanese art tradition. Follow her down the Tokaido Road to learn when and how Shibori (resist dyeing) was created and progressed. It is now a dying art form in Japan. She will cover the current issues the master Shibori artisans are facing and introduce the artists who are trying to keep it alive. Learn their unique techniques, about their tools and how Shibori is portrayed in Japanese woodblock prints.
