Yamagata Safflower Harvest

This workshop is an add-on for Full Symposium / Second Half registrants. + $60 USD.

Join Dr. Kazuki Yamazaki and his colleagues and students at Tohoku University of Art and Design for an early morning harvest in Yamagata's famed safflower fields. Grown as part of TUAD's unique field-to-fiber program, this precious dyestuff produces vibrant shades of yellow, pink, and the coveted beni red. Learn the history and applications of Japanese safflower, and process the harvest into beni-mochi dye patties for the university’s program. Participants will also receive three beni-mochi to take home.
