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. You will be introduced to the history and culture of Arimatsu Tesuji (pleated-resist) and traditional process and its variations, including Yoroidan (armour stripes), Yanagi (willow), Shinire (rope core), and Hinode (little sunrises) shibori. In the second session, Murase-san will cover adaptation and exploration of techniques. You will have an opportunity to share your experiments and samples. You will learn artisans’ methods of using and making tools that will heighten your ability to create your own hand-dyed textile masterpieces. Yoshiko I. Wada will moderate, bridging the gap between East and West and traditional and contemporary use of techniques, materials, and processes.
Taught by Hiroshi Murase, master Arimatsu Shibori Artisan.
Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada will moderate and translate the workshop.
