Japanese Embroidery - Yuki (Snow Flower)
Yuki (Snow Flower)
* These workshops will be conducted by Margaret Lee via an On-Line Link
Japanese designs on textile have traditionally and culturally reflected the delicate senses of the Japanese people to nature and the changing seasons. Snow was an important symbol as a heavy snowfall portends a springtime of an abundance of water from melted snow, which in turn indicates a good rice harvest. This project features snow in the popular Yukiwa (Snow circle) pattern. This pattern was drawn to represent snowflakes before their true images were discovered. The inclusion of other pattern depictions of snow completes the design.
