Seminar16-Lecture-Goldwork2:00 – 3:00 p.m.   “Exploring Color Interactions Illuminated in Goldwork Embroidery”  by Katherine Diuguid

Unexpected things happen when you mix colored threads with metal threads in embroidery—the metals cast their reflections onto the threads, changing the perception of the colors. Through the presentation of theoretical precedence and contemporary samples, color theory principles will be scrutinized as applied to gold work embroidery.


Seminar16-Lecture-Japanese3:00 – 4:00 p.m.   “Color in Japanese Embroidery” by Arata Tamura

Color in Japanese embroidery has had a central role in the development of the traditional art form throughout its 1600-year history. The historical development is a collaboration of embroidery, color dye, and other traditional crafts. The traditional arts of Sado (tea ceremony), Shodo (calligraphy), Kado (flowers, ikebana), Judo (martial arts), and Kendo (martial art of the sword) have attained their high quality by integrating techniques with the spiritual concept of “the way” (-do). Traditional Japanese embroidery has evolved in its thousand-year history into Nuido, the way of embroidery, emphasizing the connections between the heart and the techniques. We continue to strive to heighten the level of Nuido, combining embroidery and other traditional crafts. The EGA project, Plum in Praise, is a milestone of this grand challenge.
