Textiles used in the workshop are designed by Sudo Reiko, the Design Director of textile design firm Nuno in Tokyo. In her practice, she innovates textiles with cotton, silk, wool and polyester, and also integrates traditional Japanese paper and alternative textiles techniques such as heating and needle punching. Her new designs revived old Japanese textile equipment and craftsmanship. To address the problem of textile waste, she often creates new designs from textile damaged during production process. In this workshop, we hope to introduce the design concept of the fabrics and let participants know the stories of the fabrics.
