A three day workshop was given by the master silk artist Kiranada Benjamin click here for website at the end of June in Atlanta at the SEFAA Center ( An intense and information packed wonderful three days where ten of us learned Japanese Rozome (wax resist) with techniques using bokashi, etching, and stencils using acid dye pigments from Japan and soy milk as sizing. Here are some samples of things we practiced:

blending using special handmade Japanese dye brushes

etching on wax resist and filling in lines with dye

Kiranada Benjamin plans to return for a 5 day workshop in March of 2014 in Atlanta to once again share her 40plus years of experience with Rozome.
