About Course

Due to popular demand, the kimono course will be broadened to cover work on textiles in general. How to plan and paint a tablecloth, a tee shirt, a leather jacket. Students will be able to create anything they like on fabrics, including kimonos! We will begin with the technicalities. How to prepare your workspace? How to create a composition? Which cloth, paint, and brush? Which styles of calligraphy to use? We will look at the history of calligraphy on cloth in Japan, the Silk Road, and the West, discovering incredible artistic treasures along the way. We will then create our own calligraphic cloth and sew it into kimonos or transform it into other usable products. In the final session you can walk the catwalk in your kimono, show us the cursive curtains in your living room or dress your dining room table with your new calligraphic tablecloth.

Absolutely fantastic, diverse, interesting and challenging series…amazingly personal outcomes from the students…such a generous amount and variety of content between preparing, writing, measuring, cutting and sewing - so well thought out and delivered. Particularly loved the inspiring lead in with the focus on textiles through history. I feel so grateful to have had these incredible learning experiences - with sincere thanks Brody for all your work in teaching us everything you possibly can fit in! 🙏🏻😱🪶
