I have been practicing Shibori design for thirty years including itajime (pleated technique), arashi (pole-wrapping technique) and stitched shibori. I am largely self-taught and have also attended classes in Japanese Indigo Shibori at The Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts in Jamaica Plain. I have formally taught Shibori at Boston College’s Art Club and various adult education classes in the Boston area leading groups of 6-30 students in the practice Japanese Indigo Shibori. I have also enjoyed sparking the love of Shibori in many children and adults in my backyard and in other natural settings.
