Just a sampling of what I will encounter next week at my shibori master artist workshop

The culmination of my shibori examination and practice comes to its one year anniversary next week! I’m celebrating by taking a trip to Japan to study shibori with a master artist.  I am joining a group of 10 other amazing artists – who are also a whole lot of fun. Will try to post, mainly pics, when I am there. Bon voyage to me!
