The fourth workshop in our Japanese craft series pop-up at the beautiful Crary Art Gallery in Warren PA
Ainu decorative needlework is associated with the indigenous people of northern Japan and parts of northeastern Russia. It is a mix of applique and embroidery techniques that creates striking graphic patterns on garments. Like many traditions, it grew first out of necessity, but has become a unique form of cultural expression. In the workshop we will applique a symmetrical organic motif in cotton, and then overlay it with decorative embroidery and couched thread work in a modern interpretation of a traditional design.
