Japanese Kumihimo and Traditional Colors: Lecture and Demonstration
Friday, June 14, 2–4 PM
Join master-artist Hoko Tokoro for a lecture and demonstration (translated from Japanese) on the traditional art of Japanese braiding, kumhimo, and fabric dyeing, kusakizome. Kumihimo is a Japanese technique for making a complex multi-strand braid, used to tie together a samurai warrior’s traditional armor. Kusakizome are fabrics dyed with plant juices extracted from flowers, leaves, stems, and roots, resulting in a soft, subtle color contrast. Free; no reservations required; space is limited. This program is presented in partnership with the Japan-America Society of Washington, DC.
