Katazome Workshop (Summer 2017)
Katazome Workshop (Summer 2017)

Last summer, I visited Clare Island (Ireland) to give a Katazome workshop. During this workshop made stencil prints on silk with rice paste. The technique is based on the Japanese Katazome resist printing method. For the workshop I developed a simplified way of Katazome printing, making use of the natural dyes Clare Island's untamed nature has to offer.

Scarves
Scarves

The design of my Scarves arises by combining a variety of handcrafted printed silk textile swatches. Hence, every single scarf that leaves my atelier forms a unique piece. The technique that I use for printing is a Japanese resist printing method, known as 'Katazome'.

Since 2005, I design and create printed silk scarfs using the Japanese Katazome technique, a very laborious stencil printing technique. I cut stencils (katagemi) in simple patterns and combine them in different ways, leading to new patterns every time I print. See and read more at the 'Katazome' and ‘Scarves’ sections.

Weaving Samples
Weaving Samples

Ever since I started to weave in 2008 – first as an extension of my design- and craft skills – I enjoy to play and discover new combinations. During this process I focus on making samples, rather than weaving large pieces of fabric. Head over to the 'Weaving' section and see more.
