Introduction to TSUJIGAHANA indigo
August 10 @ 9:00 am - August 12 @ 4:00 pm$300
Tsujigahana is a very ancient form of Japanese dyeing combining the soft fuzzy edges of stitched shibori with the crisp lines of direct hand painting. You may be familiar with this process through the exhibitions and publications of Itchiku Kubota. The materials fee includes silk, dyes and all other consumable materials required. In addition, it includes the use of many of the artist’s equipment, reference materials, and everything else needed in class.
Tuition (three days): $300. Materials fee: $60
Once a year John opens his studio in rural Mendocino County to host classes. With an abundance of space, both indoors and out, you will be able to work in comfort. You will be welcome to make use of John’s large library of Japanese art and textile books. This, coupled with an abundance of textile samples, will leave you saturated with new ideas and inspiration.
