Indigo Stencils
the Commonhouse, Venice Beach

Katazome is a Japanese method of dyeing fabrics using a resist paste applied through a stencil. The stencils used are called Katagami. The stencils were developed and used primarily for printing on fabrics for kimono. The technique of using the katagami stencils originated in Japan during the later part of the eighth century. This workshop reinterpreted the Japanese art of Katazome with global geometric patterns designed by Agnes. The bold patterns are applied to home linens to create modern heirlooms.


Thanks for such a lovely afternoon. I just love everything I made and I also had such a great time making it! Great company. Wonderful instruction. Delicious food. And a beautiful atmosphere. Iā€™m excited for Shibori but I also truly loved your stencils. Your talent in creating those really shows through. My mom are fighting over the one dish towel I made because your stencil was šŸ‘ŒšŸ½.
