A series of NCTA Master Teacher workshops on integrating East Asia into your classroom.
Join us for a teacher to teacher presentations that will cover content, strategies, implementation, and resources for bringing East Asia into your classroom this year.

From the science of dyeing to the mathematical precision of the patterns, shibori is a form of art that is applicable across multiple disciplines and age groups. This presentation will start with a brief history of shibori in Japan and move to the present day. Resources, practical tips, and suggestions for the use of non-traditional materials will be addressed, enabling teachers to share this art form with students in elementary grades to high school.
