Event Details

This seminar will explore beautiful examples of traditional Japanese textiles dyed with indigo, mud, lac, and sunflower. Learn the story of Oshima tsumugi kimono fabric, and see a range of colors made from different combinations of fibers, indigo, and enzymes on ikats, katazome, and shibori. Some of these dyes come from specific regions in Japan that link local style with a meaningful sense of place. A small book of swatches dyed with Portland area plants will be included for a record of our local color palette.
