Ricepaste print on silk workshop
This summer (2017), I will be visiting Clare Island (Ireland) to give a Katazome workshop. During this workshop we will make 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.
Day 1: Introduction of technique and my work: Making rice paste, preparing the fabric, cutting stencils, printing 2 pieces of fabric for project 1>1. A and 1.B.
Day 2: Coating with soymilk, making the dyes, apply colours, drying the fabric, fixate piece 1. A Add print on piece 1. B Print 2 pieces of fabric for project 2>2.A and 2.B.
