Kimono everywhere 3
I realized in looking back on past posts that I never finished telling you about the Kimono Challenge that our local fiber and textile arts group held last year. (Look here and here for the first parts of the story.) It comes to mind now because we have just learned that later this year we are going to have a public exhibit of all the art made in the challenge.
Several people made wall art from the kimono in our challenge project.
Particularly intriguing in this one is the "Japanese" lettering in the center right of the piece. It was achieved by cutting up some silk-screened fabric in an allover pattern and sewing it in vertical strips!
This one combined silk with handmade paper and Japanese paper, with hand and machine stitching.
I'll show you what I made in the next post.
