March Theme: Interesting and unusual southwest Chinese and Tibetan red-and-white paste resist–dyed felts referred to as huazhan. At the last eastern depot of the Silk Road Jorie discovered interesting felts that have ended up in private collections. These inspired her to help define techniques and histories of other examples and experiment with replicating the (possible) techniques. The presentation also includes some thin, hand-painted Korean felts with images of buildings, horses, and Sencha Tea ceremonial utensils.

Jorie displays a felt wristband she made. The wristband may be worn simply as a fashion statement, for warmth, for protection of an injured wrist, or even used to carry a photo of a loved one!
