News from Penland!

WSN founder and President, Yoshiko I. Wada just finished teaching a class at the Penland School in North Carolina on boro, which literally means ‘rag’ in Japanese.  Check out a wonderful clip of Yoshiko Wada speaking on the subject.

WSN member Debbie Leung, assisted her in the class, as well as created some of her own designs, beautiful jackets from leno weave fulling wool, and her pre-felted wool. We wanted to share some of the photos of Debbie’s process and the awesome results!
