日本の織物の素晴らしさを感じました。 1つの作品に、気の遠くなるような時間と沢山の熟練さんの技術が詰まっているんですね。 光の当たり方で変化する作品は織物ならでは。綺麗でずっと見ていたくなります。

伝統的な織工房で、織物の話、歴史の話が聴けます。 昔の織物だけでなく、その道具や歴史背景を研究、再現しているので、とても詳しく聴けます。 織体験もできるので、次回は体験してみたいと思いました。

A very interesting visit to the working craft rooms, seeing traditional designs, painstakingly re-woven on wooden looms. Colour, light and beauty in the gold thread and complex silk patterns. Well worth the visit.

OK, the photos don't do the tour justice. I wasn't expecting much because of them. But as soon as you enter the gallery. There were several exquisite pieces. I was constantly blown away by one piece then another and another. By how they took years to make. That some were made for the Emperor and even the Pope. That I could probably never afford all of them in my lifetime unless I won the lottery. But I felt I won the lottery because I got to see them up close and how they were made. The intricate details, the painstaking research/restoration, and use of color. Definitely once in a lifetime experience
