Spring 2019 Japanese Textile Workshop in Japan

May 13-24, 2019

Immerse yourself in an old Japanese textile tradition and experience Japan's ultramodern capital on this tour and retreat

Located in the beautiful mountain village of Fujino, just outside of Tokyo, this 10 Day Retreat is a master class introduction to Japanese textiles with a focus on indigo dyeing using shibori techniques and katazome stenciling. This workshop is perfect for designers, crafters and anyone who enjoys or wants to learn about stitching and dyeing. For those individuals considering setting up an indigo vat at home, this is an excellent opportunity to learn to make and maintain a non-fermented indigo vat. The material covered in the workshop is also a hands-on introduction to Japanese culture in general. The ideas and technical approaches to textile work share the same ethics and standards as Japanese artistic disciplines.

Everyone will need to fly into Tokyo on May 12th. We will spend two days in Tokyo with Bryan as our private guide. We will visit museums, shops and flea markets in search of old kimono, fabrics, papers etc.

We will then travel by train to a mountain village outside the city for an intensive indigo-dyeing workshop and cultural retreat. Our host and teacher has lived in Japan for over two decades and is an expert in Japanese textile crafts. We will stay at his 150-year-old silk-farming house where we'll learn about indigo dyeing using the Japanese techniques of shibori (resist) and katazome (stencil) dyeing. We'll also enjoy delicious home-cooked Japanese meals and unique cultural experiences.
