Great to see this article in the N&O first thing this morning. A wee note: it should be pointed out that the correct spelling for one of the future Saturday classes is Japanese “dyeing” as opposed to “dying.” Although I suppose we could be “dying to dye” which is how I feel about it. It’s a common misspelling (unfortunately), but I often have fun with it.
Otherwise, I was very happy to see the post and look forward to the event. At this point, with the current humidity and the anticipated August heat, I think of it as “cooling” with the blues. At any rate, it’s about indigo dyeing and shibori (pattern making through textile resist – some say “tie-dye” – it’s much more than that!).
