I spent nearly a month in Japan recently, and half of my time was at a wonderful indigo workshop in the country. The rest of the time was spent eating up art, culture, and as much food as possible.
Getting blue hands in Japan
In this talk, I explore how the love of Japanese culture, travel, textiles and “blue and white” came together in a fantastic journey to Japan. This is primarily a travel talk, with an emphasis on Japanese textiles, and a few brief forrays into architecture and Japanese cuisine. I will show a quilt as well as paper-based stitched artwork that I created with shibori and indigo dye, and talk about how my particular modern design approach is influenced by Japan.
