They didn’t really happen at once but I’m going to post the pictures from them both at once. They were both awesome and fun and a blast and I loved them.
These are from yesterday.
It was a private lesson and she was super experimental. She totally got my whole idea that we’re just playing and you really can’t make any mistakes.
She came up with a whole new method that looks freaking awesome:
She also played with the old classics.
It was a great day.
But wait, there’s more:
I ran a class on the weekend which also rocked. Also chock full of playful people:
The classes at Paradigm Gardens are going really well, they are super awesome to work with!
I have a Shibori Class coming up on the 16th of August at Paradigm that still has some room.
I won’t be offering an Indigo 101 Class there in August, though. It’s only because I’m teaching one at Olbrich Gardens. It’s a teeny bit cheaper, it’s a teeny bit shorter with a little less fabric available, and it’s a big bit more outside. It’ll be awesome and I hope you’ll sign up for it.

Here’s their class description:
