tonight is my second class in natural dyeing - we spent our first class discussing colours and mordanting our fabric - we used cream of tartar and alum - I also had to tannin my fabric. I have some silk scarves that I am preparing for the shibori.

    I thought you knew about shibori.
    Hope you're having a great time of it.
    Can't believe you have time for a workshop just before Montreal!

  6. the preparing of the shibori that I have to do is the tying and knotting the fabric before we stick it into the indigo dye.
