The Sound of Weaving at Ôzu

Exhibit - Artifacts | May 15 – September 10, 2013 every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday with exceptions | 9 a.m.-5 p.m. |  Institute of East Asian Studies (2223 Fulton, 6th Floor)


Fukuko Katsuura, Independent craftswoman

Institute of East Asian Studies (IEAS), Center for Japanese Studies (CJS)


The ancient arts of weaving and dyeing live on in the handwork of dedicated craftspeople such as Fukuko Katsuura. From a love of Japan’s textile arts came a dedication to mastering traditional weaving. From a life lived on and of the land, came experiments in coaxing color from plants gathered and grown. “The Sound of Weaving at Ôzu” features a selection of her work in silk, paper, and other fibers dyed and woven, work that at once exemplifies centuries-old technique and personal vision. A series of illustrative photographs of the creative process supplement the display.


Public Event:

Institute of East Asian Studies Conference Room
2223 Fulton Street, Berkeley – 6th Floor

Weaver and dyer Fukuko Katsuura discusses textiles in the exhibition and demonstrates aspects of her craft. Free and open to the public.
