2018 – Programs and Workshops
Cotton and Indigo from Japan
Teresa Duryea Wong is the author of two books on Japanese quilts and textiles: Japanese Contemporary Quilts and Quilters: The Story of an American Import (2015), and Cotton and Indigo from Japan (2017). She travels to Japan often to research and write, and travels the U.S. to lecture. She holds a Master in Liberal Studies from Rice University and in 2014, was named the ‘Faith P. and Charles L. Bybee Scholar’ by the Texas Quilt Museum and the Bybee Foundation. Teresa has been a quiltmaker for 20 years and she is also a handbag designer and makes handcrafted leather bags for her own label, mariejay.
My lecture will be on my book “Cotton and Indigo’s from Japan” and share the fascinating history of Japan’s cotton and indigo and the quilts made there with very old and new Japanese textiles. I’ll take the audience inside the world’s finest quilting cotton printing mills and introduce the talented Japanese quilters who are designing today’s modern quilting fabrics.
Plus, I’ll discuss the making of traditional folk textiles such as boro, sashiko, indigo dye, cotton katazome and kasuri. My lecture will unravel the mysterious yukata (summer kimono) and tenugui (hand towel) and provide an insider’s tour of the studios where these precious textiles have been made using the same techniques for centuries.
My presentation is filled with beautiful images and I travel from Houston with a fantastic trunk show.
