In the month of November, several hundreds of participants in the 7th International Shibori Symposium will come to Lyons as part of the official programme. For this exceptional occasion, local artists, craftsmen/women and other enthusiasts are preparing to show their know-how in terms of Shibori and other techniques employed within contemporary and traditional textile art.

The International Shibori Symposium has previously been held in countries like Chile, USA, Japan, England and Australia. This year the choice has fell on France and towns like Paris, Lyons and Nimes, which all hold an exceptional position in terms of textile history and tradition, have been selected as host towns for the participants passionate by dyeing and resist techniques.

The official programme includes visits to museums, temporary exhibitions, conferences ant workshops. Participants in the Symposium will attend a conference about dyeing techniques at the University of Lyons 2, visit the Conservatory for ochre and pigments at Roussillon, they will join conferences at the Lyons Fabric Museum (Musée des Tissus de Lyon ) or participate at events and exhibitions at the famous Museum of Quai Branly in Paris.

In Lyons several events, for participants but also for large scale public, are being programmed at:The Fabric Muséum (Musée des Tissus de Lyon), The Printing Museum ( Musée de l'Imprimérie), the gallery Artefact, Le Village des Créateurs, The Japanese Center of Lyons, Sophie Guyot textile objects, Francoise Hoffmann, Haute couture felting, an exhibition organised by La Trame de Soi, exhibition at l'Ecole Supérieure de design Rhone-Alpes, Event at Château de Lacroix Laval etc.

The International Shibori Symposium was initiated by World Shibori Network founded in Japan in 1992. The symposiums are biannual and this years event is organised by World Shibori Network presided by Mrs Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada in conjunction with Paris American Academy under the direction of Mr Peter Carman.

The ultimate objective of these events is to reunite craftsmen/women, artists, schools, companies and scientists in order for them to exchange information and to create a source of inspiration for everyone. By this activity, World Shibori Network hopes to preserve traditional techniques and promote contemporary practice on a World wide basis.

Shibori is the Japanese term for all techniques of shaped resist dyeing, making use of tying, pleating, ligature and sewing (manipulation). These ancestral techniques are known under various names depending on the continent of practice. They form multiple techniques and know-how's. The most common denomination is “tie and dye”. These methods allows for sophisticated creation of patterns or volumes on all textiles: thread, weave, stitch and non-woven surfaces.
