Blue, pt. 1


This Holiday weekend I had the extreme fortune and pleasure to attend an Indigo Dyeing Workshop led by artist Britt Browne (be sure to check out her gorgeous blog, Growing Indigo ), and hosted by the gracious and talented Beatrice Valenzuela at her cozy Echo Park home.

I was blown away by the talents of all of the workshop participants--which made it very difficult for me to edit my photos down! Therefore, I'll be posting images from the workshop over the next couple days.

(Unrelated to the workshop, but in keeping with the theme of "Blue" ;
Tomory and I saw Melancholia this weekend, which I really enjoyed, and I finally purchased this book.)

It looks like you had a lot of fun.

It's funny that everyone who is doing the workshop seems to be wearing blue tones.

Nice segway into your other weekend activities. It really was a blue weekend.

So happy you posted these images. I am signed up for an indigo dying workshop as well as a mushroom yarn dying class in January. Looking forward to learning more about the process.

I love the art of Shibori and it looks like you had a good group of ladies. Coincidentally I was in an indigo dying work shop last week in Palm Springs, you can see my photos here: http://fashionintel.com/2011/11/25/diy-shibori/
