"Hirao Karakumi, Temari, Yubinuki: three minor Japanese textile traditions". Rod Byatt is our September speaker on the 24th at 2pm. Rod will talk about obscure textile traditions from Japan he's been working on in recent years, all traditionally involving silk: hirao karakumi (braiding), temari balls and yubinuki thimble rings (surface stitching).
