Weiss, Wendy – Ikat and Dyeing

One hour lecture and discussion of single warp ikat in India. Video clips, images, and verbal description provide a detailed view of the steps of the warp preparation for ikat in a small town in rural Gujarat, as well as in Odisha and Telangana. This illustrated talk is based on a documentation project in Gujarat, India, funded by a Fulbright-Nehru Senior Scholar Research Grant in 2009 and 2014-15. The talk will be delivered virtually and participants will have time to ask questions and discuss. Also available: virtual workshops in natural dyeing on cotton or wool, computer aided designing in Pro-Weave, and simple warp ikat on a warping board. Programs developed in consultation with guild needs and resources.  Email me.
