Japan 2018 Shibori Symposium – Post 5


Japan 2018 Shibori Symposium – Post 5 – Last night at Benese Park Hotel. Much art around inside. Here I am with Yoshiko Wada our fabulous leader. I can’t think of the famous artist behind us.

Lunch at the hotel’s museum was squid ink soup. Delicious but too thick to dye a napkin.

One of the courses in our Japanese dinner had a tidbit on pine needles.

This is inside the Kyoto train station. Gorgeous we were careful not to get lost in it.

An interesting way to use a square furoshiki.

  1. So glad you are having such a good time. The images you post are wonderful especially the old and new looms! You and Yoshiko are in front of 2 Andy Warhol pieces, prints I think. I was on her first shibori tour way back when.

  2. Do they use salt, fresh or distilled water in the processing of the fabric? What is the level of UV resistance of the finished fabric?

  3. I love the pine needle holding a little tidbit – so Japanese! And isn’t that Kyoto train station amazing? The light and shadows from the roof made me glad I had a digital camera with a large capacity card.

  4. The Kyoto train station is indeed huge…and interesting and easy to get lost. The basement has some great food stalls and great deals near closing time. I too love the pine needle tid bit. So fund – thanks for posting you trip Peggy!
