Lecture:  Narrative Fabric: A Brief History of Pictorial Prints on Fabric


Wearable meets fine art at the hand of Tobin Keller.  He is passionate about fashion and clothes because of the change in the physical and emotional state of the wearer. Through creating fabrics by hand dyeing and screen-printing and then incorporating these into the fashions he designs, the result is more artistic and sculptural. He will take us through a brief history of pictorial prints on fabrics. His accomplishments are many. Currently Tobin is art department co-chair at Cabrillo College; he is an artist, printmaker, fabric designer, clothing designer, art instructor and gallery curator.  He has had many gallery shows; fashion shows and is winner of the 2014 Gail Rich Award.  Tobin has BFA and MFA in Art.  We are lucky to have him come and inspire us!
