USA: Boston TSA, Hidden Stories Human Lives

Jorie Johnson was selected to give a talk concerning her recent research in Southwestern China about the Huazuan resist design on felt

 “Tucked away in a small village in China’s most southern Yunnan Provence feltmakers continue their tradition of Huazuan methods on felt. Despite financial difficulties, these highly auspicious, red and white paste resist dyed felts used for wedding bed pads are still occasionally ordered. 

  Yes, these masters are turning towards production of more nondescript items for gallery sales which look to me as if they were made in “anywhere” USA, Australia, or? How to persuade the remaining masters to continue with their ethnic right to these designs, yet work new colors and items into more modern terms is interesting.”
