Konnichwaこんにちは (“hello”) and thank you for visiting my site. Posts on this site/blog center around my year-long shibori investigation, which culminated in a trip to Japan to study with a shibori master for 10 days. My biography and “shibori story,” all about the history and technique of Japanese shibori dyeing, can now be found under the “Shibori 101” page on the menu at left. Enjoy the site and feel free to comment.
