Biobodega 2016 Orizomegami workshop

During this workshop I shared what I learned about Bengala soil based eco dyes on my trip to Japan. Orizomegami japanese folding ways were shown with the shapes of mount fuji, cube, slide and yatsuhashi to get the patterns. All materials were brought from Japan: Sarashi fabric, bengala dyes (including bengala indigo) and hake brushes. The attendants were given a long piece of fabric that they could use as a scarf, or cut it to get various tenuguis or handkerchiefs.
