Shibori Combo-3: Tatsumaki, a Tesuji plus Stitch and Bind Resist 2-Day Workshop for Alumni. Day 1 of 2.
August 12, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
A Virtual Workshop via Zoom
Hiroshi Murase, instructor in Arimatsu, Japan & Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada, instructor- moderator | 2 Saturdays, August 12 & 19, 2023 | Each day: 3:00pm – 6:00 pm PST
Join Murase-san and Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada to explore how the striking blue Shibori designs on white ground can be achieved! The instructions encourage students to invent their own approaches to reverse conventional white-on-blue Shibori designs.
Tesuji involves hand-pleating, and the Arimatsu artisans have been ingenious in innovating a variety of ways to create dynamic designs on cotton yukata and kimono using Tesuji and its variations. Other shibori binding and stitching techniques such as Nui and Makiage incorporated with Tesuji lead to a myriad of design possibilities.
You will learn how to combine Makiage Shibori (stitch and bound-resist), Nui Shibori (stitch-resist), Tesuji-Tatsumaki Shibori (pleat and bound-resist), and a variation of ground resist such as Okochi and Oboshi.
This combination shibori workshop is only open to shibori alumni who have previously studied with Murase-san and are interested in developing their own creative designs and skills. If you’ve studied and practiced shibori using SFTV’s recordings of Murase-san’s workshops, that counts.
