Shuttle Works Studio

In Japan, the earliest known example of cloth dyed with a shibori technique dates from the 8th century; it is among the goods donated by the Emperor Shōmu to the Tōdai-ji in Nara.

Until the 20th century, not many fabrics and dyes were in widespread use in Japan. The main fabrics were silk and hemp, and later cotton. The main dye was indigo and, to a lesser extent, madder and purple root.

Shibori and other textile arts, such as tsutsugaki, were applied to all of these fabrics and dyes. -Wikipedia

Selvedge Magazine

The #selvedgefair in Edinburgh at Dovecot is open for business... come and join us... a Selvedge drop-in workshop is well under way and free tours of the tapestry studios are available...

Selvedge Fair, Edinburgh, UKAug 19, 11:00amDovecotEntrance £5

THE EVENT
The team behind the international magazine Selvedge bring a curated collection of twenty five merchants and makers to Edinburgh. The exhibitors sell a range of rare vintage fabrics, covetable haberdashery and skilfully handmade textile treasures. The fair offers the perfect opportunity to meet makers, catch up with old friends and find that special something.

THE VENUE
Having had a slightly nomadic life since its establishment by the 4th Marquess of Bute, in 1912 Dovecot Tapestry Studios moved into Edinburgh’s Infirmary Street Baths in 2006. Built in the late 19th century in response to the cholera outbreak, this building’s restorative history reflects The Dovecot’s core principles of preserving traditional craft in a contemporary world.

MAKE A DAY OF IT
Enjoy a guided walk in the historic city centre with the September issue of Selvedge. Relax with a cup of tea or a delicious lunch in Leo’s Café. Learn about the history of the Tapestry Studios on a free tour.

GETTING THERE
Dovecot Studios are prominently located on Infirmary Street in Edinburgh’s Old Town, close to the National Museum of Scotland and are a 10 minute walk from Waverley Train Station, Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace.

Please note we will not be sending physical tickets. To gain entry to the event, please bring along the printed order confirmation or present it on a smart phone.

Craft in America

Jaime Guerrero's process has taken years to perfect. Beyond blowing the glass, joining the pieces is one of the most difficult parts of making the works. If the pieces are not all the same temperature when joining, they could shatter–making the finished works all the more impressive.
You can watch Jaime make the works in Mano-Made (opening August 26th) in the Craft in America episode NEIGHBORS airing nationwide on September 29th (*check local listings).

Craft in America

This event is free; an RSVP is strongly encouraged to rsvp@craftinamerica.org.

Please join us on Saturday, October 7, 2017 at 4pm for a discussion on child immigration with Professor of Human Development and Psychology at the UCLA Institute for Immigration, Globalization & Education, Dr. Carola Suárez-Orozco.

In conjunction with Mano-Made: New Expression in Craft by Jaime Guerrero, the Craft in America Center is hosting the next talk in our Craft in Action Lecture Series regarding the psychological development and identity formation of child immigrants. For this discussion, Dr. Suárez-Orozco will be presenting her research and leading a conversation with artist Jaime Guerrero focusing on youth immigration in Los Angeles. The discussion will provide insight into the experiences of these children and how we can best support their integration into the fiber of the Los Angeles community.

Dr. Suárez-Orozco is the the Co-Director at the Institute for Immigration, Globalization, and Education as well as the Senior Program Associate of the W.T. Grant Foundation. Her latest book is titled Transitions: The Development of Children of Immigrants (2015) which is the winner of the 2016 SRA Social Policy Award for Best Edited Book. Her research is focused broadly on the adaptation of immigrant families and youth. Areas of specialization include the educational achievement among immigrant origin youth, immigrant family separations, the role of the “social mirror” in identity formation, the role of mentors in facilitating youth development, gendered experiences of immigrant youth, unauthorized status and development, and immigrant emerging adults in community college settings.

This event is the third talk in Craft in America's initiative: Craft in Action, a series of talks using art as a channel to build awareness and activate for social good. Stay posted for more events taking place in coming months.
