Study trip to Japan to learn about the technique katazome and make a textile for a yukata.
Katazome (型染め) is a Japanese method of dyeing fabrics using a resist paste applied through a stencil. At Mr. Noguchi I learned the skills of traditional katazome printing. In the last days we made our own yukuta fabric for which I used a contemporary approach to make an all over imprint of ginkgo leaves.
Thanks to Mr Noguchi and son, Bryan Whitehead, Hiro, Kim Dror, Dillon Perry and Minyi Leong for the super great time in Fujino and around.
