Dressed by Nature: Textiles of Japan

Join us at the Minneapolis Institute of Art (Mia) for a free, in-person Mia/NCTA two-day hands-on workshop in conjunction with the exhibition “Dressed by Nature: Textiles of Japan.” This mini-course will include a tour of the exhibition, presentations by NCTA art teachers and Japan specialists on the arts of shibori (dyeing), katazome (stenciling), the lives and clothing of Edo period firefighters, an overview of the Mia online resources, and two hands-on workshops. Participants will learn about hands-on lessons for Japanese style textiles that you can use in your classroom and will come away with some finished work and materials.
