Katazome Snippets for Free, Pasque Flower

I would like to offer a few free Katazome snippets from my previous experiments. Toss it in your fabric scrap stash, add a small bit to your exquisite quilt, embellish it, sprinkle water droplets on it to see how the soy sizing acts as a kind of scotch-guarding, put a patch on your denim motorcycle jacket, etc. Please email me with your mailing address and I’ll send a sample to the first 5 people who respond. It will go out in the mail on Monday April 20 after I return from a brief vacation down river!

We were surprised to come across this beautiful pasque flower on our evening walk at Lake Como. The City of St. Paul and the regional water district folks have been improving the shoreline since we moved in almost 12 years ago . There is a show of blooming and ripening plants, mostly perennials native to the “edge of the prairie,” from mid-April through mid-October.

I use the materials and techniques of the Japanese art of katazome (paste resist stencil dyeing) to capture my experience of nature. My work celebrates daily meetings with the wild birds, plants, and lake breezes of my local urban surroundings.

  1. Thanks for visiting, Phyllis! You didn’t miss out — I’ve only had 1 request thus far. Your chances are quite good as I don’t have that many followers yet! email me if you are still interested. Link is part of the main post above.
