Ever since i first discovered shibori, I’ve wanted to visit Japan and more specifically, visit Arimatsu on the weekend they hold their annual Shibori Festival. This year my dream came true.
It’s been a whirlwind frenzy of activity at my place lately, but I wanted to look back at the indigo shibori workshops I held recently at the Cecilia Fox warehouse in Brunswick.
