10iss in Review

The 10th International Shibori Symposium (10iss) was a highly rewarding event characterized by its setting in beautiful Oaxaca, Mexico, and people’s collective efforts to further the preservation and sustainability of textile cultures and their environments. We want to extend deep appreciation to the 10iss committee, participating artists, artisans, and presenters, supporting venues and organizations, the community and government of Oaxaca, and all the attendees for helping make the 10iss another milestone accomplishment for the World Shibori Network and the international textile community.

To provide attendees with additional background information and to share with others some of the exciting exchanges that took place, the 10iss team has assembled a Press Kit, which includes:

  • 15 high-resolution images of 10iss events
  • A personal statement from co-chair Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada
  • A PDF of the official 10iss Program (English and Spanish text)
  • A PDF of the official 10iss Proceedings (English and Spanish text)
