I thought I would remind folks newly interested in learning shibori techniques that my original online shibori techniques workshop is still available in my online bigcartel shop. It has been there for over a year now since I originally posted it- many have taken it. After the first initial run of the class I reworked it into a self-study class for a very fair price of $25 (that’s $5 per lesson!).
Here is the intro to my online shibori workshop:
The beauty of shibori is that it was created in a much simpler time, yet resulted in some stupendous fabric designs and possibilities. It was created out of ingenuity and a desire to have decorative fabrics for the masses. You don’t need a lot of fancy equipment to make yourself some basic shibori fabrics. In fact, most of what you need can probably be found in your kitchen, your garage or just hanging around the house.
As an anniversary of sorts, I am going to include a 20 minute skype call with the purchase of this class through the end of October. You can use this call for a review of your work at the end of the class, for one-on-one help on a particular technique, or just to chat.
It’s always a pleasure to encourage creativity and wonder through shibori. Shibori is good for that. It encourages problem solving and original thought-I think that is what drew me to it in the first place and has continued my interest. I am also going to go on into the class and update a few things, perhaps add a little here and there as well. It’s been a while since I checked in over there.
As always, the online class is always there for you regardless of timezone and time of day. No commuting necessary. There for you when you are there and ready to check in. No roll call needed, and you’re never late to class!

I give you the techniques and you make it your own! You can be assured that the images I post here, on my flickr, and in my classes are of my own work (unless noted) and not of the work of others. Some examples include:
