Kakishibu Persimmon Tannin & Pigments

2-Day workshop with Ana Lisa Hedstrom (USA)

KAKISHIBU PERSIMMON TANNIN and PIGMENTS on PAPER & FABRIC

Kakishibu  is a fascinating colorant for paper and fabric.

There is a long tradition of use in Japan and China, but it also offers unconventional applications for western designers and artists. 

It develops its characteristic shades of brown when exposed to UV light, and requires no heat nor chemicals for fixing.

We will work with direct application and shibori on both paper and fabric.

Adding iron will create black, and earth pigments can be added to create more shades.

We will also have a small indigo vat for use.
