Class Alert: Shibori Dyeing class with Arounna from Bookhou

After countless students have told us that they have missed our classes, we are announcing our next Bloesem class almost a full two months ahead of time! We are pleased as punch to be having Arounna Khnounnoraj, half of the duo behind Bookhou, come from Canada to teach us the ways of Shibori dyeing. (Remember she will only be in town for a short while, this is not a class that will be repeated soon, so don't miss your chance!)

Many of you are already familiar with Arounna's work. Her bags, pouches and many other homewares and accesories under the label Bookhou are handmade beautifully and sell like hotcakes in the Bloesem store!

If you are drawn to patterns and fabrics, may we suggest adding some Shibori dying techniques to your skills with this new making class. Shibori is everywhere! It’s the new pattern for 2014 - 2015 and now you can learn how to make it too. We are already in love with this Japanese dyeing technique which dates back to the 8th century.

So spice up your wardrobe this season and learn how to make your own Shibori scarf and tote. Instead of throwing away that old plain top, maybe give it a make over with some Shibori!

 The price of the workshop covers 3 hours of learning and creating your very own scarf and 1 tote bag with Shibori patterns, plus an extra goodie bag to continue working on more patterns at home! Accompanied with delicious food and drinks, it will be a great time to get your fingers dirty and engage with others who love hands-on experiences just as much as you.
 
Arounna will teach you the different techniques of sewing, tying and clamping fabrics to create “resist” areas where the distinctive Indigo dye will not be absorbed resulting in beautiful patterns your eyes will not believe.
