Shibori & Indigo Dyeing, Talk and Demonstration
October 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Kathleen Goddu, a featured artist in the Interwoven exhibit, will host a lecture and demonstration of traditional Japanese Shibori (indigo-dyed fabric) techniques and the indigo dyeing process. Goddu will introduce the cultural and economic importance of indigo to Japanese culture and textile arts that inspired beautiful textile traditions that continue to influence today’s fashions. Attendees will have the opportunity to view examples of historic Japanese textiles and Goddu’s shibori fabrics up-close.
This workshop is part of the Donnell Family Forum, a series of exhibits, workshops, and lectures inspired by the lives of the Donnells, a 19th century family whose home is now a part of Maine Maritime Museum.
