Masayoshi Ohashi studied under the direct lineage of Japan’s first Living National Treasure, Keisuke Serizawa, and has since gone on to research and transmit traditional Japanese dyeing techniques to new generations. His recent works based on his intimate knowledge of water processes have secured him a place of honour in the world of Japanese dyeing.

Reiko Sudo works with endangered weaving traditions throughout Japan, actively seeking to preserve and further engage artisan skills toward contemporary designs. 

Presented here is a selection of fascinating textiles created by these two educators, both known for their intense interest in craft, their in-depth research, and their dedication to education.

Exhibition runs September 5–26, 2014
