Paper: Beyond the Fold
The exhibition is taking place at The National Centre for Craft and Design (NCCD) in Sleaford.
Jennie and I have started ‘Paper Rhythms’ project in 2014. We had an exhibition in Japan.
Our ‘Paper Rhythms’ project is a part of Paper: Beyond the Fold.
This is our first ‘Paper Rhythms’ exhibition in UK.
The Paper Rhythms collection of paper weave and braid by Mayumi Kaneko (Japan) and Jennie Parry (UK) will also feature as part of the exhibition. Origami and kumihimo techniques are used by the pair with great respect for the purity of form for which the Japanese culture is so revered, shedding new light on this Japanese tradition.
I gave a demonstration on last Saturday – Paper to Paper Yarn
Mainly I demonstrated how to make paper yarn.
Jennie showed how to braid, Kumihimo, on her Takadai.
I’m glad many visitors showed their great interest.
Our work beautifully displayed.
Many thanks for all visitors and gallery staff.
開催中の展覧会 － Paper: Beyond the Fold の会場でデモを行いました。
I posted “Sudden Winter” in January with some photos.
Time has passed and it’s already summer.
My progress was a bit slow but finally it’s on my weaving, FROZEN.
The story goes: Frozen pond Ripples are frozen Colours are frozen under the water Weak sunlight on the frozen pond
I held an Indigo workshop for a young talented artist, Connie.
Her paintings are astonishing.
She is one of the prize winners of Black Swan Arts Young Open 2016.
The winners were given one-to-one workshop with a professional artist or craftspeople as a part of their prize.
It was a perfect day for indigo dyeing.
After the workshop I dyed my yarn as well.
I had series of beautiful blues and green, onion orange over-dyed with indigo.
Connie is form Hong Kong. She wants to carry on her study here.
She is a great artist already but there are still a lot to learn.
Good luck Connie!
