Japan Matsuri Presents… Japanese Textiles with Rob Jones

Rob from Romor Designs introduces briefly what he does in terms of a broad coverage of Japanese textiles techniques with examples of Shibori (resist dyeing), Katagami (stencilling) Sashiko (embroidery), Kogin (counted thread embroidery) and Boro mending.

Then we get to focus on Shibori, being taken through some basic techniques – binding and stitching, before being shown some samples of what these patterns look like once they’ve been dyed and unpicked.

You can find details of all of Rob’s workshops here…


Rob’s work is on display as part of the Embassy of Japan’s Exhibition, The Techniques Shaping Japanese Textiles
