Tsujigahana an ancient combination of stitched shibori and direct painting techniques, allowing for gentle, moody images brought alive with subtle touches of well-defined lines. Many of you may be familiar with the technique through the exquisite artwork of Itchiku Kubota (above).

During this three-day course we’ll be examining historical as well as contemporary works. We’ll explore a range of stitching and capping techniques while delving deeply into the aesthetics of direct painting. This process adapts quite well into contemporary and Western aesthetics. Won’t you come explore with us?
The course includes intensive instruction, with plenty of time for Q&A. ZOOM based, each session will be recorded and available for viewing for one month  to make it easier for you to work later at your own pace. Youll have access to additional recordings posted on Vimeo along with printed matter, including a copy of a long out-of-print Japanese volume of traditional tsujigahana designs.
