EVENT CANCELED

The town of Teotitlán del Valle in the Mexican state of Oaxaca is renowned for its weaving traditions and is an important center of indigenous Zapotec culture. Zapotec master dyer and textile artist Porfirio Gutiérrez examines the rich history of Zapotec weaving and how it expresses cultural identity. Gutiérrez also discusses his studio's role in preserving natural dyeing techniques using pigments derived from plants and insects. The lecture is presented as part of the daylong Fiber Arts Day event.
