Silk-From Moth to Cloth!

Japanese American National Museum

June 23-24 This is a two-day exploration of the Japanese tradition of silkworm rearing. On day one, learn to reel thread from cocoons with a traditional silk reeling device (zakuri) and try your hand at making silk handkerchiefs (mawata) from the cocoons. On day two, learn to process the silk cocoons into other usable fiber, thread, and jewelry applications. Some silk dyeing will also be done using the cocoons. Included will be video documentation of a trip to a modern and a traditional sericulture farm and filature mill in Japan, as well as video highlights of my recent Silk Study Tour to Japan. I will also bring live silkworms! You may want to take some home with you.
