General Meeting

September 25, 2017

Workshop
5:30pm - 6:30pm
 
In Septembers's workshop we will be dyeing a hankerchief using shibori methods. Our speaker, Lynne Brotman, will bring all the supplies. She recommends wearing clothes you don't mind getting dye on!

 

Also, wear an apron. If you have an extra hankerchief you want to dye, you are welcome to bring one!

 

Program

6:45pm – 9:00pm

 

Our speaker for September is Lynne Brotman from Austin. She will be speaking on Shibori, the Japanese way of dyeing fabric. She completed an artist residency in Japan with a master Shibori artist culminating in a solo exhibit at Tokyo Electron Headquarters in the US. Her work utilizes cross-cultural symbolism, especially pertaining to color and texture and its effect on our beliefs and actions.

Artist Statement

Symbology is the study of past and present symbols that have become ingrained into our being. Symbols signify our existence and our connections with the world around us illustrating feelings such as, "I have been here", "I believe this", and "I am like others." They mark the roadmaps of Brotman's work, both in their presentation and in their interpretation by the viewer.

 

Symbols determine the colors and mediums she incorporates into each piece. Building layers of rich colors, through mediums such as dyeing, fiber manipulation, printing, and/or mark-making, she embarks on a journey where she develops her own personal symbology. Her vision is to give voice to our stories and experiences through the tactile medium of fiber.
