Orizome - Japanese Paper Dyeing and Book Binding

Weekend Course

This course is not currently on the schedule

Tutor: Lucy May Schofield

About the course:

Using Orizome Japanese dying techniques we will explore the effects of geometric folding forms on mulberry paper to create endless combinations of possible patterns and colour. In using folding as a resist method and dye pots of inks, you will experience the surprise of the unfolded orizome emerge.

You will gain insight into a traditional Japanese practice which continues to be in use as a decorative technique still mastered today. On day two we will use the unique papers created as covers for a series of 4 Japanese stab sewn bindings (four hole, noble, tortoise shell and hemp leaf).

This course is suitable for those with an interest in cross-processing, a love of textile repeat pattern, and those with a degree of bookbinding experience.
