April 2022 – CALLIGRAPHIC KIMONOS: The magic of wearing letters
Nothing is more exciting that transforming a flat piece of calligraphy into a flowing garment. Marks on cloth become even more beautiful when they are wrapped around your body. 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 clothing 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. The final session will be an international catwalk of all your wonderful work!
