Katazome Workshop at Convergence 2008 Tampa Florida

Here are some photos from John Marshall's workshop in Katazome, rice resist and natural dye techniques. So many topics have been discussed during the workshop that pictures really tell a thousand words.

A laturgical piece, the colors and shading of the pigments to create a delicate dimentional quality.

Some of the equipment used in the process; mixing the rice resist and the ceramic dishes for the pigments. A bowel of soy beans plumped and reading to make soy milk.

The two bowls with the golden liquid are the rice resist ready to use.

Stencils to be used with resist process.

Applying the rice resist to the stencil.

These are a few of the things we did on the first day in class.
