Color Dye Workshop with Olinda Silvano
Join us for this unique Color Dye Workshop with artist Olinda Silvano!
Shipibo-konibo artist Olinda Silvano uses geometric Shipibo weaving designs, "kené," to create large works of public art. Kené is an ancient art representing nature and the living culture of the Shipibo-Konibo people of the Amazon basin. “Kené means ‘designs’ and is the name for the geometric patterns that identify my ethnicity,” explains artist Olinda Silvano Inuma de Arias. “Kené…also summarizes the worldview, knowledge, and aesthetics of an entire people, their tradition and roots in time. It is a source of information about our origins and the close links between our community and our lands.”
