James S. Copley Auditorium
Thursday, 1:00 p.m.
Join Hisako Takaku, the last practitioner of the ancient wax resist dyeing technique called roketsuzome, for a live demonstration of her craft. The creation of dyed kimono and obi—for which Hisako and her father, Kuboku, are renowned—is a painstaking process that yields highly elegant works of wearable art. Hisako’s presentation will take the audience through this entire process, with her movements projected onto the big screen and an interpreter to provide insights into each step. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a living artist using traditional process to create her signature work.
