Mr. Hiroyuki Shindo, Indigo Specialist, Japan
May 22, 2011
The Contemporary Textile Studio Co-operative hosted an informal lecture and textile showing with Mr. Hiroyuki Shindo, an expert in indigo dyeing. Mr. Shindo was in Canada to attend the opening of the "Japan" exhibition in Ottawa, and we were lucky enough to be able to bring him to Toronto. He showed pieces from his extensive collection of traditional Japanese textiles, including examples of unique board clamp dyeing and rare indigo textiles.
