Teresa Duryea Wong, author, lecturer, quilt historian and quilter, will take us back in time, to a fascinating point in Japan’s history when cotton & indigo – two epic plants – forever changed Japan’s textile world. Meet the masters who are preserving the old traditions of indigo dyeing and meet the quilters who have dedicated their quilt making to working with antique cotton. Learn the stories behind traditional cotton textiles such as kasuri, katazome and kimono cloth and how a handful of Japanese weavers are continuing these traditions into the 21st century. Go inside Japan’s esteemed textile printing mills, and hear why the finest quilting cotton in the world is currently printed in Japan.
