Wafting II - Work With Dye Techniques

  • Google Calendar ICS

"Traditional Japanese dye techniques produce a refined design through disciplined processes. In contrast, several of the artists selected by Inoue defy Japanese dye tradition by completing work in a spontaneous manner. As a result, new and dynamic dye techniques convey artistic energy directly to the viewer"

- Mashiko, Gallery Director

Somé : Dyeing the Australian Environment

Somé: Dyeing the Australian environment adds a uniquely Australian twist to the quintessentially Japanese textile practice of katazome and yuzen.

Textile artist Melinda Heal reflects the beauty of the Australian environment through the Japanese dyeing traditions ofkatazome and yuzenSomé depicts Japanese sensibilities in capturing the gentle and rustic beauty of nature, with a hint of playfulness in its unlikely subjects—cockatoos, gumtrees, eucalypts and other native Australian species. Heal hand-dyes detailed designs on silk, cotton, linen and hemp textiles, capturing the strength and fragility of the bush.

In mid-November, the 6 of us Kyoto Seika Textiles Master's Students are holding a group exhibition, "how how" in an old former elementary school in downtown Kyoto. The school, "Rissei Shougakkou" is now a cultural heritage building thanks to it's retro western-style architecture. The internals of the building are still in 1960's style classrooms, complete with original blackboards, library books, bag hooks, etc etc.

It will be a very interesting place to exhibit! There are 6 of us exhibiting and we will each have our work in a separate classroom. Come along and do some exploring!

November 12-19th, daily 12-7pm (last day til 5pm) 

Entry is Free. 

Rissei Shougakkou (Former Elementary School) is located on the West-side of Kiyamachi Street, halfway between Sanjo and Shijo Streets.
