A delicate and elegant trip to Japan without leaving Paris? It's happening Sunday November 13th, 2022 from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm, in Paris (7th)!

The Franco-Japanese cultural Association Talachiné and Atelier Ikiwa are joining forces to help you discover lesser-known facets of Japanese culture, through a unique workshop.

Welcomed in the flat of the founder of Atelier Ikiwa, Laurence, you will be immersed in Japanese culture around 2 complementary themes: Sashiko embroidery and Aizome, Japanese indigo.

Akiyo san, the founder of the Talachiné Association, will lead a creative workshop (lasting 3 hours) dedicated to Sashiko. Sashiko is a traditional Japanese embroidery inspired by the recovery of used textiles. Originally, it was practiced on indigo fabric, with a specific white thread. Sashiko was actually used to quilt fabrics to increase their strength, and thus obtain warmer clothes. The designs are simple, often geometric and embroidered in front stitch. In this workshop you can make a case (for pens or small treasures) by embroidering the traditional Japanese Seigaiha pattern. A tribute to patience and delicacy, this creation is an escape through the work of the hand, the best meditation!

Laurence san will talk about Aizome dyeing, the Japanese indigo blue, its history, vocabulary, preparation, variations, techniques used to sublimate it, and her addresses to discover it in Japan.

These moments of sharing will also be an opportunity to taste a rare Japanese blue tea, an oolong that has been subjected to a delicate semi-oxidation, thus releasing a very rich aroma. This tasting is offered in partnership with Comptoir Thé Bio Thé Bon.

Date: Saturday, October 1, 2022, from 2 to 6 pm

Place: Paris 7th (métro Solférino)

Participation fee: 45€ per person

Only 6 participants

Registration: on the website of Talachiné Association

Looking forward to seeing you (again) on this occasion!
