workshop preparations

August 21, 2012

it didn’t rain!!

the Orchard was full

I had a nice spot under an apple tree

and Carrie came to weave

a busy day full of endless questions and few sales!

on Monday Carrie helped to prepare for a shibori workshop in the studio on the weekend

of course, I have a number of books

and years worth of samples. Natural dyes, chemical dyes and vat/discharge dyed. Arashi (pole-wrapped), stitched, tied and itajime (board clamping)

and the necessary equipment

    lovely spot! did you eat any of the apples? rain free days are a rarity around here, lately. that looks like an excellent and fun workshop! wish i was closer. post photos of the work! it’s always neat how people interpret shibori in their work.

      I’ll try to take pictures during the workshop, all the participants are new to shibori so it should be fun. have to keep my fingers crossed for good weather.
