5 May 2018

Japanese Katagami stencilling class with indigo with Rob Jones

Date: 5 May 2018 10:00 to 17:00
Details:

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Japanese craft of Katagami (stencil cutting) has been around for hundreds of years, with craftsmen making the most delicate and detailed patterns and representations of nature.

Katagami stencils are made from Japanese washi paper, soaked and bonded together by the juice of the Persimmon fruit and other secret ingredients and then dried and smoked to create an almost entirely waterproof paper, ideal for stencil work.

During the class, Rob Jones will also explain about the history of Katagami stencilling in Japan, the four types of stencil cutting techniques and show you a number of vintage stencils, including some from the Edo and Meiji periods.

Fabrications is honoured to be welcoming Rob Jones to teach this class! Rob is a textile designer specialising in the ancient Japanese art of Shibori, using stitch, bound and clamped resist techniques to create intricate patterns and textures on scarves, table linens and lampshades. He selects both new and vintage textiles, sourcing beautiful old kimono silk from Japan and vintage and modern cloth from the UK for his creations, made at his studio in North London. Rob has studied at West Dean College and under Bryan Whitehead in Fujino, Japan in 2014.



On completion of the class participants will confidently be able to:

- Make the rice paste used as a resist for all Katazome (stencilling with indigo)

- Understand how to make and maintain an indigo vat and dye with indigo

- Stencil with leaves and other found objects

- Cut your own simple stencil which you can take away with you as a souvenir

- Know how to paste fabric for dyeing with a variety of stencils including your own, those made by the tutor and some modern Japanese stencils

- How to use a persimmon paper cone to draw with paste

- You will use your stencils to dye a number of samples

Rob will also explain about the history of Katagami stencilling in Japan, the four types of stencil cutting techniques and show you a number of vintage stencils, including some from the Edo and Meiji periods.


The class is aimed at all levels.
