World Shibori Network

Celebrating the visual languages of PEOPLE, COMMUNITY, CULTURE, and ENVIRONMENT through the global practice of resist-dye traditions and innovations, keeping in mind authenticity, reciprocity, and networking.

Hello from Sweden.

WSN President Yoshiko I. Wada is currently in Sweden on the invitation of iapsis (the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s International Program). Today, we share a photo round-up of her travel so far…

In Stockholm, Yoshiko conducted a workshop and gave a lecture at  The Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities and later visited the Museum of  Ethnography to look at their textile collections. At the Museum of World Culture in Gothenburg, Yoshiko talked about resist-dyed textiles from across the world.
