Ripples of Creativity

Two weeks ago I was fortunate enough to attend a workshop taught by Margie Davidson at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, AB. The workshop was two days long.

The first day we learned about manipulating cotton in folds and gathers and then dyeing the cloth in vats of dye. This method of dyeing is called Shibori. The second day we used natural indigo in our vats.

It was a wonderful learning experience and a great opportunity to network with some members of the Fibre Art Network who were attending the workshop, as well as make some new friends.

Here are some of my results from the workshops.

The one below is my favourite.


  1. Your fabrics turned out wonderful. Do you have plans for them or they for your stash at this time?

  2. For giddy up:
    I have plans for some of them and the rest will be in my very special stash :-)

  3. Oh wow, those are gorgeous! I am absolutely drooling over these. What a great workshop to attend.
