These are the interpretation panels for the 2018 Katagami in Practice Exhibition at Asia House. The Exhibition was put together by the Museum of Domestic Design & Architecture to showcase some of the outputs from the Arts Council England funded project 'Katagami in Pratice: Japanese Stencils in the Art School. The project started with 400 Japanese katagami stencils that form part of the Silver Studio collection, and were acquired by the Silver Studio in the late 19th century as inspiration for textile and wallpaper design. Several researcher and arts practitioners then developed project work inspired by these objects and the processes that went into making and using them. The panels outline the historical background and summarise the research outputs.
