The design for the 2022 Advanced Class has been introduced during the last autumn teacher’s class and will be focused on the volume stitches using padding based on the traditional Japanese Uchikake design that is created during the Edo period. The color scheming session in accordance with Japanese traditional colors will be discussed during the course and seek for what would be the successful selection for the different fabric colors etc. The fabric color on the original picture is Kyo Murasaki (Kyoto purple), but you can select from two other colors, Kurenai red and Hanada blue from the new Traditional Color Samples for Dyeing Fabric such as Kurenai red, and Hanada blue. You will have an optional gold leaf session if you order a gold leaf kit to enhance the overall expression.

The Lions with Peonies

The lion is called the “King of a Hundred Beasts” and the peony is called the “ Queen of a Hundred Flowers”, which is a good combination and a symbol of fortitude against evil.

Even the invincible lion has only one thing to fear, and that is a worm inside the lion’s body.

The worm is a parasite that grows inside the hair of the lion’s body and eventually tears through the skin and bites into the flesh.

However, this pest dies when it is exposed to the night dew dripping from the peony flowers. So the lion rests under the peony flowers at night.

The lion’s resting place is under the peony flower.

The lion and the peony have been depicted together since ancient times, with the following message

What is your refuge? Where is safe haven where you can rest in peace?

The golden bridge signifies an aiding path that will take us to the final destination.
