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.
