John Marshall Presentation and Trunk Show

Sacramento Weavers and Spinners Guild is partnering with Sacramento Center for the Textile Arts to present John Marshall, internationally acclaimed fiber artist, specializing in the traditional Japanese techniques of katazome (stencil dyeing) and tsutsugaki (cone drawing).

Morning Program — Pigments throughout the Ages: Pigment use has been associated with humankind since the earliest times. Join John in a lively presentation tracing this history from the millennia old excavation sites of South Africa to the colorful and whimsical bingata pieces produced in modern day Japan.

Afternoon Program — Trunk Show : Bring your pennies to spend on silk yarns or perhaps a new silk wrap. Enjoy firsthand the works of John Marshall, ask him questions about techniques and uses, and go home with a souvenir!

Tuesday, January 28, 2014, 10:00am to 2:00pm, Shepard Garden and Art Center, 3330 McKinley Boulevard, Sacramento, CA. 95816. Admission is $3, or free to SCTA and SWSG members. Trunk Show Free. For information, call 916 508-8984 or email stonehill200@aol.com.
