Colors of the World: a Textile Tour for Virtual World Travelers

A national group of handweavers undertook a year-long exploration of the book Colors of the World, by Dominique and Jean-Philippe Lenclos, producing handwoven textiles inspired by their choice of a specific location featured in the book. 

This presentation will showcase the 30 textiles that resulted from this challenge, along with explaining how color is influenced by geography, the premise of the book. There will be a demonstration of weaving, with a hands-on opportunity to try handweaving on a table loom at the conclusion of the presentation.

Byram resident Sally Orgren, Editor of the Handweavers Guild of America’s Shuttle Spindle & Dyepot magazine will be presenting. Anyone with an interest in textiles, fiber arts or travel is invited to attend.
