In November 2016 I travelled to Japan for a three week textile tour. Part of this experience included a textile and dyeing trip with artists Natalie Miller and Ingrid Keneally. To experience Japan is to delve into the most stylish, hip and happening culture on the planet. We visited Shibuya, Tokyo and Kyoto (just to name a few) to source the most fabulous linens, fabrics, indigo and leather, as well as to participate in a natural dyeing workshop at a traditional Japanese textile school, not usually open to members of the public. This was my second time travelling in Japan, and I must confess, my love for the people, the country, the food and of course the culture has only grown stronger through this experience.
