Adventures into the World of Japanese Shibori Dyeing
Shibori Home Decor Process
I rarely post photos of my process, primarily because I forget to take pictures while I’m “in the zone.” Today is an exception as I actually took a few photos of one of my current projects. I have been commissioned to create some shibori-ed home decor pieces for an upscale interior design firm in Redondo Beach, CA. So here’s what’s happening in my studio this week!
