If your resolution this year is to learn new things, come by the Shepard Garden and Arts Center this Tuesday, January 28 through Sunday February 2nd and find out about the intriguing and extensive art and history of dying textiles, and perhaps even get inspired to try your own hand at this ancient, beautiful craft.
Acclaimed fiber artist John Marshall, who specializes in the traditional Japanese techniques of katazome (stencil drawing) and tsutsugaki (cone drawing), will be presenting “Pigments Throughout the Ages”, “Down and Dirty, Working with Natural Dye” and “Clothing Design Workshop”. Each presentation goes from 10am to noon or 10am to 4:00 depending on the presentation. After the Pigments presentation from noon till 4pm, you can buy silk yarns or finished wraps at a trunk show and talk with Marshall directly to get any of your questions answered.
This special event is being organized by the Sacramento Weavers’ and Spinners’ Guild. Admission to the presentation varies. For more information, go to www.sacweavespin.org.
