First- I forgot to mention that the daily dyer subscription will cover the time during the upcoming Silk Study Tour to Japan. So the added bonus is that if you sign up for the full 6 months you will get to see a bit of the behind-the-scenes tour. Sometimes dyers have to go to Japan! We are gathering a great group. There are still a few spots open so if you have been imagining yourself in the land of the rising sun…come on along! Not that you need a little tempting or anything but here is a fun flickr set of photos of past trips- and a little video just for fun…
Next- there will be a new in-studio workshop announcement next week. Dates look like they will be end of January/ early February. It will be a combination workshop featuring Richard Carbin’s mandalas and my arashi shibori techniques. Day one will be mandalas with Richard and myself (assisting) and day two will be with me learning arashi shibori techniques and Richard assisting . Day three will be a free dye/play day to practice some of the skills you have learned. We are still working out the details but you can sign up for day one, day two, day one & two (a little discount), and day three will be reserved for only those who have taken day one or two or both (both days will get you a nice discount on day three). We will work with procion (Richard’s fave), colorhue, and acid dyes and even the indigo vat. It will be limited to 6 people each day. I’m just getting things set up so I can list it in the shop sensibly. So much going on right now. Does it ever slow down? I wonder…what if we combined arashi and mandalas….
