Materials Fee: $35 for continuing students, $45 for new students
skill level: Intermediate to Advanced
This Ro-kata class offers many possibilities for creative, innovative design work on silk with Japanese acid dyes. Using Japanese kata-zome stencil-dyeing history for inspiration, we will further explore the four ways of interpreting one design in a cut stencil and add exploration of other design motifs, from floral to architecture to single image stencils. Throughout the week we will look at textural printing, shadow image, and matrix use. The class will include slides of Japanese kata-zome/ro-zome design for background information as well as actual examples from Kiranada’s collection. Come join us.
Returning Ro-Kata students: $35
New students needing new course booklet and equipment: $45
