LIVING COLOURS: KASANE EXHIBTION AT JAPAN HOUSE LONDON
Japan House London presents an exhibition focusing on natural dyeing techniques and the age-old art of kasane, the creation of Japanese colour combinations. Running 5 April ‒ 19 May 2019, this new exhibition reveals the Japanese appreciation of colour and sensitivity to the changing seasons, shining a spotlight on the guardians of this tradition.

The exhibition will focus on the work of the Yoshioka Dyeing Workshop in the ancient capital of Kyoto. Master of colour Yoshioka Sachio is the 5th-generation head of the 200-year old family-run company. On taking over the business, he abandoned the use of synthetic colours in favour of plant-based dyeing techniques. In recent years his daughter Sarasa has taken a leading role in the running of the workshop, continuing her father’s work to preserve and cultivate the hand-dyeing tradition.
