I have a fine art background and have always enjoyed creating pattern and imagery on cloth. In 2004 I was introduced to the Japanese art of katazome, and found the materials and processes to be profoundly inspiring. Since 2009 I have used these materials and techniques to explore my favorite subject matter, creating decorative, functional objects as well as unique textile art.

I also teach classes in katazome and related aspects of design at the Textile Center of Minnesota and through residential workshops. I show my work in the upper Midwest, and sell through fine craft galleries and shops as well as online.



Kit Eastman is a textile artist from St. Paul, Minnesota. She makes decorative and art textiles, hand-painted in the Japanese tradition of katazome, or stencil dyeing, using a palette of natural pigments and dyes on linen, silk and other natural fibers. Her work celebrates daily meetings with the wild birds, plants, and lake breezes of her local urban surroundings.

    Absolutely love your owl!!! My sister collects them and has over 1,000 – all different. I’ve had friends make them in wax (like a big candle), clay – pottery, flat like a frieze, free standing candle holder and a bird feeder – stained glass, beads, and I have quilted several. Is your pillow available for purchase?
    Many thanks for sharing your art with those of us on Facebook!
