Living Colours: Kasane – The Language of Japanese Colour Combinations

12 May 12:00 – 18:00
Booking not necessary, free
An exhibition focusing on natural dyeing techniques and the age-old art of kasane, the creation of Japanese colour combinations. The exhibition shines a spotlight on the guardians of this tradition, the Yoshioka Dyeing Workshop, a 200-year-old family-run company based in Japan's ancient capital Kyoto.
Enter a forest of colour and discover how poetry and literature are woven into this story, and continue to resonate with people in Japan to this day. The exhibition continues until Sunday 19 May.
