About the Lecture (from the LongHouse Reserve):

Boro is a deeply cherished folk tradition admired for its beauty and revered for the story each swatch, so tenderly incorporated, tells. Who better to share the story than LongHouse tour leader extraordinaire (Insiders Tours to Japan 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013 and India 2012) acclaimed lecturer, author and curator – Yoshiko Wada. Considered one of the most important teachers of textiles in the world, Ms. Wada single-handedly introduced the art of Japanese shibori to the United States.
