Conducting Interviews at Washino Dye-Works



On May 14th, we conducted interviews at Washino Dye-Works as part of a preliminary research for creating a digital archive of Yūzen materials at the Art Research Center at this university. 

Students from Seminar C of the Kyoto Study Program in the College of Letters also participated in the interviews. We heard details about the dyeing process as well as the current situation of the industry, while actually viewing the work areas and the elaborate tools in the factory. We were also able to interview an artisan who used to work at the company and heard about how works had been done at the factory during the Showa period.

We would like to thank all of our interviewees for their time and help.
