Shibori by Carol Anne Grotrian
On Saturday, August 15, as part of the Summer Celebration of New England Quilts, quilt artist and instructor, Carol Anne Grotrian will share how she has explored the ancient Japanese tradition of shibori dyeing in her quilted landscapes for over thirty years. Carol will be bringing many quilts for viewing and will employ a few digital images in her lecture. She will demonstrate how this forerunner to tie-dye creates fabric patterns that are especially beautiful when dyed in indigo. The program will be held at 11 am in the Conference Room at the National Park Visitor Center, 246 Market Street, Lowell, MA. This program is free, but space is limited so reserve a space by calling 978-452-4207, ext 16. This is one block from the New England Quilt Museum, where there are more quilts on exhibit.
