We invite you to a one-of-a-kind Embroidery Workshop with artist Olinda Silvano!

Olinda will dedicate a workshop session to show her embroidery creative process, based on Shipibo designs from Perú. 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. Her textile products are made with 100% cotton fabric that she knits with colorful threads and designs representing her Peruvian indigenous roots.
