Due to popularity, we have added another Foundation Kasuri Course in March 2017!

Foundation Kasuri Course
March 1-13 2017

Intended for: Experienced Weavers*
Duration: 10 days
Capacity: 5 students
Held in English

Kasuri is a technique whereby weaving threads are resist-bound with elastic or nylon tape prior to being dyed, in order to create different coloured patterns in woven cloth. This course is intended for international students who have some experience with weaving and would like to try kasuri for the first time. By making samples, students learn warp-kasuri, weft-kasuri, and double kasuri.

*Equivalent to at least Beginners Course completion level (prior experience in warping and setting up a floor loom).
