Yama Kaminari Page ---- Re: [SCA-JML] Re: Japanese A&S
As a matter of fact, I practically live at your Clan website, gleaning ideas and learning learning learning....... and I appreciate
the hard work to put that website together.
Right now my Clan Genji daimyo would like me to work on making sashimono, windscreens, and banners. I did read the instructions
y'all have, and I'm wondering if perhaps the 'rozome' technique of wax-resist dyes was used, might work today for this, &
particularly if something closer to authenticity is desired. Certainly the instructions on your Clan website provide an easier
method. However, undyed silk by the bolt from http://www.silkconnection.com is less expensive than cotton/poly.... and more fun to
run my hands through, too, lol....
Should my path lead Pennsic-ward this year, I'd love to pay a visit to my brothers and sisters of your Clan. Right now I am
committed to Warriors and Warlords as the Children's Activity Coordinator, and could only afford to go to Pennsic with a group of
people to share expenses, especially if my kids came along as well, and I can't imagine them willing to stay behind.
At your service,

If you drop by the Yama Kaminari encampment at Pennsic, convieniently located near the Troll Booth you shall see all these things.
Noh theatre, Taiko drumming, armor making, maku, lots of banners, akunoya, our annual fertility festival and even a buke yashiki
with thatched roof. Please review our Clan website at http://www.nb.net/~kmeg/kaminari/ . We are always glad of visitors.
