What a remarkable 2 day workshop (November 16th and 17th 2013) this was…it was fascinating to me to be able to compare the 2 indigo vats….we did zinc/lime vats and now I realize why Yoshiko Wada in the 5 day workshop I took from her in 1992, used synthetic Indigo….and indeed it seemed that the 4 women in my class were preferring to use the synthetic vat. The natural vat was beautiful with the high quality indigo we used from Maiwa…..what a treat!!!
and more shibori……
I am sorry to say I neglected to take any photos of our dyeing process, but dye we did…..
And finally we get to see the fruits of our labors
it was quite a wonderful experience, and I’d like to thank these 4 women for being so attentive and focused!…..our day ended with this remarkable gift from the Universe
