Richard Carbin (aka AsiaDyer) is still here and we are still busy but I wanted to get a few photos up from the workshop before we get going here today. Also we have put a few things into the bigcartel shop just to get the day started.
This post will be photo heavy and text poor as we are both itching to get some work done- also there are orders to ship that have sat a bit longer than usual so must get them rolling too. We spent 2 days prior to the workshop practicing and working out further details in person…
so, without further ado…
we welcomed folks to the workshop with a little display out front- just to let them know they were in the right place and to entertain any passerbys.
under richard’s tutelage, i did a practice piece on silk kimono lining with colorhue dye. learned a lot!
here, richard is trying out the colorhue on silk noil- his expertise is procion MX dyes on cotton. playing around…
me doin’ my thing with richard’s technique…you know me…can’t keep me away from the silk or the indigo. i think i’ve successfully infected richard with the indigo blue bug…
and here is the next thing we did with indigo…he was hooked!
fast forwarding… we jump into the workshop
and into day 2…
we ended the workshop by collecting up, ironing and looking over all that had been done. we worked large and small scale, with cotton and silk, with mx, colorhue, and indigo and sent more mandala energy out into the world!
interestingly, this video on Carl Jung’s patient’s artwork appeared that same day.(link removed 2016 as it is no longer working) However, you can google the words Carl jung and mandala and see the connections. Here is one.
I will finish up here with a teaser of indigo we have just loaded into the big cartel shop. Richard is already deep into the indigo vat this morning and i am dyeing to join him!!
beautiful, glennis, and you look like you’re having a grand time!
don’t you know it!
I prefer the indigo mandalas – more sophisticated and calming. Well done to experiment.
it’s all about experimenting-that’s for sure!
They are all beautiful, but I also favor that blue. Can’t help it!
i know….me too-it’s just the indigo in me. and more time consuming to get all the different shades of blue where you want them. the multi-colored ones make people happy in different ways.
These are gorgeous. I want to try this.
I’m blown away by the complexity of the designs produced and made. Congratulations to you all.
Thanks for the inspiration!
Gorgeous pieces! I would really love to know how you produced these awesome items 🙂
It’s amazing the designs that are made from this folding process. I would love to learn how to make these mandalas. Beautiful work!!

you can take the online course that Richard and I created located in my bigcartel shop…$35.
I’m wondering if you could practice this Mandala process on paper first, to see how it turns out, then do your best design on fabric.
They are so beautiful, Glennis.
The mandala patterns are mind blowing.
U want to learn this art..can i..if possible send me the tutorial..
