11th International Shibori Symposium
Japan | June 21 – July 10, 2018
25 years since the 1st International Shibori Symposium in Nagoya, we gather again to learn, exchange, and inspire each other within our international community of likeminded creators. The 11th International Shibori Symposium (11 ISS) spans three regions of Japan, connecting the contemporary art and fashion hub of Tōkyō, traditional shibori and design centers in Nagoya, and rural folk traditions in Yamagata and Yonezawa. The symposium explores their shared legacies of craft and local industry: 紅花・藍・絞 - Safflower, Indigo, Shibori.
