If you are drawn to patterns and fabrics, may we suggest adding some Shibori dyeing techniques to add to your skills with this new making class. Shibori is everywhere! It’s the new pattern for 2014 - 2015 and now you can learn how to make it too. We are already in love with this Japanese dyeing technique which dates back to the 8th century. We're proud as punch to have Arounna Khounnoraj
coming over all the way over from Toronto to teach a couple of classes.
So spice up your wardrobe this season and learn how to make your own Shibori scarf and tote. Instead of throwing away that old plain top, maybe give it a make over with some Shibori!

WHAT'S INCLUDED The price of the workshop covers 3 hours of learning and creating your very own scarf and 1 tote bag with Shibori patterns, plus an extra goodie bag to continue working on more patterns at home! Accompanied with delicious food and drinks, it will be a great time to get your fingers dirty and engage with others who love hands-on experiences just as much as you.
Arounna will teach you the different techniques of sewing, tying and clamping fabrics to create “resist” areas where the distinctive Indigo dye will not be absorbed resulting in beautiful patterns your eyes will not believe.
