Lecture:   Influence and Inspiration


Ana Lisa will give a power point presentation sharing the sources of her innovative approach to the Japanese tradition of shibori.  She will share her journey as a designer of art wear to the creation of studio art quilts, and most recently, the making of indigo dyed paper installations.

She will include slides of her trips to China, Oaxaca, and Madagascar that have inspired new investigations.

A trunk show of scarves and jackets will follow her lecture.

Workshop:   Itajime Shibori


Itajime or folding and clamping is a simple process with infinite possibilities.

Students will make a series of bold graphic designs on sample fabrics and a scarf using silk acid dyes.  Ana Lisa will bring some carved clamps with a decorative maze cut into the blocks to channel the dyes. This technique is called Kyokechi and she will bring samples of Japanese and Chinese clamped fabric as well as examples of her own work.
