Celebrating the visual languages of PEOPLE, COMMUNITY, CULTURE, and ENVIRONMENT through the global practice of resist-dye traditions and innovations, keeping in mind authenticity, reciprocity, and networking.
Starting next week (Feb 27, Monday evenings), Katrin Reifeiss will be teaching “Kimono – Japanese Shibori with Indigo” at the Brooklyn Textile Arts Center.
From the website: “In this 4 week class, students will learn the basics of Shibori using one of the most important dyes in Japan (and in the world), Indigo, while making and dyeing their very own cotton kimono. Students will be making the Yukata kimono, which is often blue and white, and will be required to use the sewing machine to assemble the kimono pattern.”
