Japanese Paper Dyeing with Natural Dyes
Saturday, September 13, 2008
New York Academy of Medicine
1216 5th Ave
(corner of 5th and 103rd Street)
New York City)

    While the principles of preparing natural dyes for use on washi
    are the same as for fabric, the handling of the paper is
    necessarily different: Tatiana, will guide us through the steps.
    We will prepare 2 different dyes and two mordants for both brush
    dyeing and dip-dyeing.

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. An accompanying
workshop will cover traditional dye preparations, methods, and touch
on simple resists such as shibori and orizome. 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.
