EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT KASURI
The weaving workshop EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT KASURI was based upon the Japanese weaving technique Kasuri.
EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT KASURI was the result of my
three-month stay in Japan. In Japan I saw how cultural differences
and meetings create an inspiring, dynamic and constant aesthetic
development. I experienced the appreciation and preservation of
crafts and tradition. Part of this preservation takes place through
schools, but also through small craft workshops popping up
everywhere, workshops where people meet to create, celebrate craft
My wish was to make a Kasuri weaving project that explored the possibilities of the technique, which could bring a group of people together and emphasise the meeting of cultures.
The outcome was the Kasuri workshop EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT KASURI. The Kasuri technique seen through the eyes of a Danish textile designer. EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT KASURI was my textile interpretation of the amazing meeting of cultures I have experienced in Japan. It is my suggestion to how the Kasuri technique can be interpreted and bring people together.
