NATIVE FABRICS OF OKINAWA, a lecture by Sensei Eric Wada, will be given on April 27, 2013 at 10:00 at Rinzai Zen Mission in Paia. On view will be Sensei’s banana fiber collection, the largest of its kind outside of Okinawa. See poster in Upcoming Events.
Along with Ukwanshin Kabudan, we hosted a bingata workshop on October 6, 2012 with Yuhsuke Yokoi, an artist from Okinawa. Bingata is a traditional Okinawan textile art using stencils and a resist to create brightly colored designs. Take a look at the bingata photo page. You may see examples of his work at www.yuhsuke.jp and he also has a Facebook page.
We will be updating from time to time with articles and links relating to our group and our mission, as well as with announcements on our various events. Please visit us regularly and feel free to leave us comments.
