Symposium: Japonisme in Design Practice

April 10 2018, 10:00 am - 6:00 pm

This symposium, held at Asia House in London, was part of the conclusion to the MoDA’s Arts Council England funded research project, Katagami in Practice: Japanese Stencils in the Art School. 

The day featured the four practitioners who took part in MoDA’s project, along with researchers from a number of  institutions around the UK and in Japan.  Speakers explored the ways in which katagami (Japanese stencils used for printing kimono cloth), and other Japanese imports like them, influenced modern practices of craft and making, as well as how they influenced designers and makers of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Some of the speakers have uploaded their papers so to Figshare so you can read them.
