[BKARTS] Lecture: Tradition of Japanese Naturally Dyed Papers, Sept. 12, CBA, NYC

The New York Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers along with the Center for Book Arts would like to announce a lecture with Tatiana Ginsberg:

Kusakizome-gami: The Tradition of Japanese Naturally Dyed Papers

Tatiana Ginsberg spent two years researching traditional methods of naturally dyeing handmade paper while on a Fulbright grant in Japan and shares her gathered knowledge of this Japanese art through talks, publications, and workshops. She worked as an apprentice at one of Kyoto's oldest and most respected natural dye workshops, as well as others, visited papermakers and conservators, and explored the history, tradition, and surviving ritual uses of naturally dyed papers. An evening talk will encompass the history of Japanese colored papers from production to use and techniques of making and applying traditional natural dyes and pigments. Many of the oldest extant papers in Japan are dyed, and yet the practices associated with producing such papers are known to only a few remaining craftspeople. These beautiful papers are valuable to artists and conservators for their subtle, environmentally friendly, and inimitable colors. 

Along with her time in Japan, Tatiana studied at the University of Iowa Center for the Book Arts. She recently completed an MFA at UC Santa Barbara where she is now a lecturer.
