March 28:  Shibori workshop at Gather in Cary
Join me to learn Shibori techniques in this super fun, hands-on class!!!
Shibori is a Japanese technique of binding, stitching, and clamping fabric to create pattern when dye is applied. Loosely, you could call it “Japanese Tie-dye”.

I’m teaching an “Intro to Batik” class at Ornamentea in June!!

Yes!!! Finally, I got my act together, and I’m going to teach a little Intro to Batik class at Ornamentea in June!

The class dates are June 10 and June 28. The project(s) is to make 1 or 2 (*depending on each person’s personal pace*) 11-inch silk handkerchiefs.  They have a hand-rolled hem, so they can stand alone as a pocket square, or you could put it in a little frame.  You could also make a decorative pillow!!

It’s a good starting point to get everyone familiar with how Batik is made, and some of the tools you can use to create something unique and your own!! Materials are provided.

We’ll be using soy wax, fiber-reactive dye, tjanting tool, brushes, and some other do-dads I like to experiment with!

Space is limited, and you can sign up online.  Here are the links to the two class dates: June 10 class

June 28 class

This will be my first time teaching this… Questions during class are absolutely welcome!!!  I’ll also love some feedback after the class, for sure! Have a beautiful cool spring day!!!!! Image
