Tsujigahjana: A Marriage of Shibori And Hand Painting
December 4, 2017 through December 6, 2017
Description: Tsujigahana is one of the most fluid and expressive forms of Japanese paste-resist dyeing: It is a free-style method where resist is squeezed from a paper tube to block out areas of color, evoking mood and feeling through the movement of line, while color is applied around and over the resist to bring life and flowing contrast to the design. Learn the basics of this inspiring marriage of shibori and hand-painting while working with natural dyes on silk, cotton, and bast fabrics. Start with the traditional patterns John has prepared and then, as time allows, develop your own designs. You'll love the results - the soft and moody blends of colors you create with a range of stitch-resist techniques plus the crisp lines and delicate shadings you create with hand-painted pigments! John Marshall has spent the past 45 years immersed in his love of Japanese textiles. He began his career in Japan, studying with renowned instructors, before returning to the States where he teaches, publishes and exhibits widely. Experience Level: All Cost: $350 for individual SEFAA members; $420 for non-members
