This research by Mamiko Markham examines the various aspects of the Katagami stencils in the collection of the Museum of Domestic Design & Architecture to determine geographical origins, dates and makers. Derived from this, the aim is to provide a descriptive summary for each Katagami where possible, which would include accurately determining the carving (tooling) technique, design technique and interpreting the symbolism of the design motifs. This is part of the 'Katagami in Practice: Japanese Stencils in the Art School' Arts Council England project.
