Rin Ikeda & Barbara Shapiro

Barbara Shapiro forwarded a few pics from the ISS event last month. Here's a great one of her (R) with Rin Ikeda (L) taken at the musee du quai Branly "MQB" during the Paris symposium.

Rin was featured in the
Presentation des Artistes/ Defile (runway show) on Nov 8 where she showed off her elegant fashions made of gambiered (mud dyed) silk from Guangdong, China. Barbara, a WSN web member and a TSA Board member, demonstrated “Hexagonal plaiting for sculptural work” as part of the Paris courses held at the PAA. Barbara’s French translation skills also came in very handy! Thanks for being at the ready, Barbara.
