About

Nishijin-kasuri, a traditional Japanese textile produced in the Nishijin district in Kyoto uses many different types of colored yarns to weave into decorative designs. These workshops will allow participants to learn and have a hands-on experience on the dyeing techniques for this textile which is considered an important stage in Nishijin-kasuri. With the assistance of master Shiro Oe, participants will create their own beautifully dyed silk scarfs. Come and learn more about Nishijin-kasuri at these workshops! We look forward to seeing you all there.
