At our July meeting Katie Chaplin from Japan Crafts treated us to a very informative talk on Japanese Textiles. Details of their construction especially weaving and dying techniques were carefully explained.
Numerous examples of weaves and richly decorated fabrics were handed round as the talk progressed. We were amazed at their detail and fine threads.
Katie is a regular visitor to Japan and was able to relate fabrics to their origins as well as present day use. Beautiful Japanese fabrics and kits were available to tempt us to buy.
We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting in September.
