    I think that I may have signed up for an on-line course, not the Long Beach course. Please help me change this.

    I’m on the other side of the world from you (Alabama!). But… I’d love to take an online class or purchase directions for making your beautiful flowers. Gail

    Hi Glennis,

    I recently signed up with Karen B’s blog, but haven’t been able to contact her or get any feedback from her. I read that she is joining Earthhues, but no further correspondence. What’s become of her. I miss her knowledge and superb guidance in this art. Perhaps I am leaving messages in the wrong place. Any suggestions?

    I love both of your work, and the photos of the shibori is a fantastic idea..”shibori as photographic art”! How novel. I am a silk painter and textile designer also, and have decided to try my hand at the textural form of shibori rather than just the flat version which I have been doing for eighteen years. Right now I am using regular pvc pipe for arashi, but can’t find a source for the ppl pipe that you and Karen are using. (I saw it in your photos.)

    I live in San Diego, California. Where can I find it on the west coast? The pvc is not going to hold up for very long as Karen posted in her instructions. Help, please! Really excited about incorporating this new dimension into my work. I have been mentally stockpiling the experience since I met Karen in Missouri at the conference four or five years ago. Ready and eager to “wrap and roll”, to coin my own phrase! Ha! Hope to hear from you soon.

    Thanks for your blog and all the inspirational info.

    Glennis,

    Thanks a million! Now I can really get down and boogey! Hurray! My clientele are really responding to this dimension of shibori, and I am having a ball or should I say “pleated” ball? Thanks, again.

    Hi Glennis,
    Once again, your photography of the shibori pieces is amazing! Are you doing the photography yourself, because the arrangements and lighting is SUPERB!
    Thanks for the info on the ppl pipes. The rep has already contacted me.

    Thanks again, for all knowledge and inspiraton… If anyone has any silk painting questions, I will be happy to give them some input or enlightenment. I have been teaching silk painting for 16 years.

    Thanks mucho.

    I am in the process of starting my own business of jewelry and bridal designs. I would love to purchase your ribbon. How can I do it wholesale? and how about the online classes?

    Hi,
    Will you ever been doing an online indigo class? I am currently taking the shibori and love the indigo and was just wondering? K

    Hello!

    I wanted to know if the shibori class at the long beach quilt show in July 2010 (323. SHIBORI TECHNIQUES—OLD AND NEW) will be different from the JANM Shibori Class that I attended on March 27, 2010.

    Thanks

    ro-
    i aim to make all my classes a bit different- there is always something new to discover! So, the answer is it will be at least 50% new!

    and on the things that may be repeated, i always offer an advanced version of the technique as shibori is quite relentless in its ability to challenge your creativity to new heights. we just keep asking “what if…?”.

    I’m trying to find information on any online classes that you may have going right now, but either I’m overlooking it or you’ve closed them? You mention here in the comments to someone else to “see above link” but I don’t see it anywhere! I’m hoping to give the classes as a christmas gift to someone, so I would love it if you could get back to me. Thanks!

    Will there be a much overlap in the content of your two classes (101 and 708 in Houston)? I am interested in both shibori and indigo. Please let me know if you think the two day class (#101) will cover both subjects or if the two classes are quite different.

    Thank you for your time. Hope to see you in Houston.

      Hi Diane-
      The two classes are quite different. the first one will focus on making the fabrics for the garment and will include shibori techniques though not exclusively. the indigo class is strictly indigo and while employing shibori techniques you will learn about various types of vats and their preparation as well as solid shade dyeing and ombre dyeing with indigo. the first class is all silk dyeing while the indigo utilizes cottons, linens etc.
