Great fun learning the art of Japanese dyeing that involves folding, twisting or bunching of cloth and binding it, then dyeing in indigo.
Shibori is an ancient Japanese dyeing technique using natural dyes, and in this class you will use natural indigo, which antibacterial properties and has been used abundantly throughout history around the world. Learn the fundamentals of this timeless pattern-making process. We will concentrate on folding, tying, and using clamp resists, and dye in a plant-derived indigo vat. All dye materials and several pieces of cotton will be provided.
I am a passionate teacher who encourages students to create unique fabric creations, whether the end product is a quilt or garment. Creating what is important to the maker is a joyful experience that I try to pass on in my workshops. Wherever you are in your design process my goal is to inspire your creative “genius” and improve your techniques.
Please join me at one of my local classes or suggest that your guild hire me for a lecture and workshop.
Come to Class where we have loads of fun and learn from each other.

Come to class to see me demo how to quilt you own quilts to look like they have been quilted by your local long arm quilt professional.
My open and encouraging teaching style allows my students the freedom to access their creativity and explore new ideas in a fun, friendly environment.
Solid skills can be achieved through practice over time, but they are just a small part of creating good art.
By the end of the first class, each student will be able to think creatively about how to express their life experiences through the projects they create. nts and expanding my own creative experience.
I believe I can unlock the creative potential of every one of my students, and help each of them reach their creative goal.
When creating with denim, try mixing different colors of repurposed denim and new denim for a bold effect.
Here is a tip: when creating with repurposed denim, use different colored denim and see what kinds of patterns you can come up with. I had so much fun working with contrasting black denim and blue denim. I used pale purple embroidery threads for the hand stitching.
