FibreHeart and saw some of her Indigo mandala pieces she's done. Vyonne mentioned she was signing up for Mandala online class from Shibori Girl. So I went to the web site and checked out the class.
Just looking at this picture was enough to get me excited so I signed up!! So glad I did.
We were given our first lesson today (class started June 1st) and the video's and written explanation(s) are wonderful! I took my laptop into my sewing room and just played the video over and over. It was like having an instructor beside me. So far I think the class will be worth while for sure. I'll be using fiber reactive dyes rather than the indigo dye.
My love of shibori is first the design or patterns you can create...but it's also the hand work that I love so much. These two pieces I did back in September of '09. They are using stencils from Jane Callender that I purchased back then.
So off I go to fold more pieces! I have two small 12" x 12" squares ready for our next lesson, which is stitching. I'm going to cut one larger piece just because!
