The art of Shibori can be traced to ancient times and from around the world: South America, the Middle East, Africa, India, China, Malaysia, and Japan. It made its way to North America in the twentieth century, most notably as the colorful tie-dye t-shirts from the era of the Grateful Dead. Kathleen Waln, Shibori artist and weaver, will discuss traditional and woven Shibori and will illustrate both techniques using some of her own unique pieces that feature hand woven/hand dyed fabrics in cotton and silk. Examples from Waln’s collection will include a traditional Shibori Japanese kimono and noren (a form of Japanese domestic textile), pieces from her fabric collection, and her own traditional Shibori silks.

Ms. Waln retired from an academic career as a professor of theatre and costume history and as a professional costume designer. She has been attracted to Japanese textiles for years and was inspired by a form of Japanese domestic textile, called noren, which is traditionally used to mark an entrance or as a room divider. Ms. Waln is also a member of the Bobbinwinders Guild and a guest curator for Strings Attached: Tradition Meets Contemporary Woven Art.
