June 2016 IPS Eastern Branch Meeting
Guest Speaker: Katie Chaplin
Katie is a textile artist specialising in Japanese arts, crafts and culture. Her paintings on silk are in the style of Japanese woodblock prints, but with a unique, modern twist. She also produce jewellery using vintage and modern kimono fabrics to a traditional Japanese design, and her hand dyed silk scarves are always popular.
Katie's business "Japan Crafts" is a source of authentic papers, fabrics, glues etc and has also produced a range of craft kits with easy to follow instructions in English. Katie regularly give talks and workshops throughout the UK to groups such as WIs, Embroiderers' Guilds, Luncheon Clubs and art groups; these are a perfect opportunity to learn something new about another culture.
