Delve into the fascinating world of katazome, an ages-old Japanese paste-resist dyeing technique, using authentic methods and materials.  Learn design and stencil making, paste making, and paste application, while working with natural dyes on silk, cotton, and ramie. This is an online learning opportunity–all sessions will be recorded, and participants will be encouraged to download the recordings to keep and review at their leisure.

Apprenticed in Japan at the age of seventeen, John Marshall has specialized in this art form for five decades.  His work has been featured in exhibitions and solo shows throughout North America and Japan, including the Textile Museum, the Embassy of Japan, the US State Department, and Kodansha. John has spent his life sharing his love of Japanese textiles through his teaching and publications.  He is one of the featured artists in  Katazome Today:  Migrations of a Japanese Art, currently on display at the Boise Art Museum.

This is a six-part workshop.  Registration includes all sessions–the package of supplies will be mailed out just after Christmas. The workshop is intensive and designed for adults. Fees for this workshop are non-refundable.
