The Fiber Artists of San Antonio will stage a communal dyeing workshop at the studio of Laura Beehler in Converse, TX.
Fifty fiber artists will join together in the dyeing of 50 yards of cloth!! This epic act of community building is inspired by the work of Hiroshi Saito, a living National Treasure of Japan. Hiroshi Saito is famous for two things: his art, and his ability to orchestrate acts of community-building around a long sheet of white cloth.

Nozome are about individuals coming together in wonderful acts of group creativity. [Read more…]
