For our November meeting, we’re excited to hear from guild member and textile artist Miriam Norris Omura, who will talk about her work as a weaver in a program entitled “A Contemporary Shift on Double Ikat: dye painted warp and weft.”
Miriam will do a brief lecture with slide show and video clips giving a bit of background on traditional ikat, showing images of four contemporary artists (including herself) whose work pulls from ikat influences, and then Miriam will talk specifically about her own process. She’s bringing samples of her work so we can see her technique up close, and she will have detailed handouts for those weavers who want to try their hand at the process.
Please join us for this exciting program. One of the great benefits of a guild membership is getting to see what extraordinary work our members do, and getting a chance to hear first-hand how they make the magic happen.
