Kasuri is the Japanese term for the intricate process of creating delicate
ikat patterns in both warp and weft yarns. The patterns, many of which
carry specific cultural meanings, are the result of careful planning,
selective and precise binding of warp and weft bundles, and the subsequent
dyeing and weaving of the cloth. Beginning with a brief slide show and
lecture, Charlotte will compare the related resist dyeing practices of
other cultures to Japanese kasuri and then conduct a practice session of
hands-on kasuri binding.
Cost - $20.00 plus materials
