In Conversation with Yoshiko Wada – LongHouse Lecture Series
In Conversation with Yoshiko Wada – LongHouse Virtual Lecture Series
We invite you to join us for this illuminating series of three virtual talks led by one of the leading experts in Japanese textiles and techniques, Yoshiko Wada. LongHouse founder Jack Lenor Larsen was an ardent admirer of Ms. Wada and wrote in the foreward to her book “Memory on Cloth: Shibori Now”, “Perhaps more than anyone else, Wada caused the evolution of fiber focus from cloth structure to the dye patterning that we now recognize as surface design.”
Explore the timeless art and craft of fabric and broaden your knowledge of textile design in this informative and fascinating series of conversations with Ms. Wada, who Jack called “a Colossus, spanning east and west, past and future.”
