Hiroshi Murase, Japan, a master Arimatsu shibori artisan. 

Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada will moderate and translate the workshop.

 

The workshop covers the historical and cultural background of the quintessential Arimatsu technique, Miura shibori, and Makiage shibori, and their variations in the first session and adaptation and exploration of techniques in the second session. Murase-san will demonstrate artisan methods of handling traditional tools and help you heighten your ability to create your own hand-dyed textile masterpieces. Yoshiko will moderate, bridging the gap between East and West and traditional and contemporary use of techniques, materials, and processes.

Miura is a continuous looped-bound-resist achieved by using a simple hook to keep tensions on cloth, thread, and the hook. Makiage (maku+ageru=wound up binding) is executed by stitching the outline of patterns (nui-shibori), gathering the thread, and protecting the area by tightly, spirally binding to create crackled textured ground which can be controlled in a myriad of ways.

 

The technical foundation will be covered in the first session and in the second session, adaptation, exploration, and innovation of the techniques into your own creations will be covered.

 

Workshop material per student: Fabrics from Japan, History & Technical Information document, and Recording from both classes are included in the workshop fee for you to keep. You will need a Miura hook, shibori stand with a Makiage hook attached, shibori binding thread, and a round wooden bobbin. To purchase them, go to the SFS online shop, use a 10% DISCOUNT CODE which you will receive on your Eventzilla REGISTRATION RECEIPT. Please note that the flat rate priority shipping of the fabric from Berkeley, CA will be borne by each student.
