On Sunday, September 18, 2022, Margaret Kinsey will be joining us for a virtual lecture on Rozashi: A 1400 Year Old Needle Art from Japan.
Rozashi is an ancient Japanese embroidery technique. Its origins are vague. It resembles Bargello/Florentine embroidery in our culture. The Japanese say it origins are in the Tempyo (700-799 AD) period. During the Tokugawa and Meiji eras, as late as the 1820s, the ladies of the court considered Rozashi as the most refined art and handiwork. It was even called the hobby of the Imperial household.
