Please note that theme "Peacock" requires 39" Frame
We cordially welcome all phase X graduates to register for the next 2016 Advanced Class. The theme will be Peacock inspired by Ito Jakuchu. This class is long-waited for many stitchers and we appreciate your patience. This design is shown on page 5 of the publication, Japanese Embroidery the World of Kurenai-kai. This class will be held at JEC, Atlanta on August 8 - 12 (free optional stitching date on 13th)
Ito Jakuchu (1716 – 1800) is a well-known Japanese painter of the mid-Edo period, whose paintings examine traditionally Japanese subjects, particularly the birds. Many of his otherwise traditional works display a great degree of experimentation with perspective, details, and with other very modern stylistic elements.
To make this class better experience for each stitcher, we made a trip to Japan and learnt special expression from Mr. Yamashita at Kurenai-kai workshop. It is quite challenging to express the intricate brush strokes and distinctive expression of Ito Jakuchu, but interpretation with silk threads and metallic threads brings about new dimension to the path of Nuido. We are also preparing for the stitching video.
As for the fabric, we will be using Uchikake – Gold fabric which is wider.
You have an option for gold leaf. If so, please submit fabric order 35 days prior to the shipment or class.
If you wish to reserve your seat for Atlanta class which will be more than likely to fill up quickly, please register from below.
