|About Katazome - Step-by-Step Process for Japanese Stencil Dyeing|
First a stencil is cut from handmade Japanese paper called "shibugami". When it is finished a layer of silk mesh is attached to the front of the stencil to strengthen it.
You can see a video of me explaining and demonstrating katazome on Oregon Art Beat
I teach Introductory and Advanced classes where students learn how to do this for themselves.
