Weekend warrior! Life

Ana Lisa's fabric.jpgEven though I don't commute for daily work, I love to sleep in and enjoy being lazy on weekends. But last week, my weekend started early with packing fabrics, sewing box and a sewing machine. This time again, I am a student, not a teacher for this weekend! Ana Lisa Hedstrom, respectable shibori artist/ teacher's Katano shibori workshop was offered by EBHQ. After I taught Bojagi workshop at the EBHQ, I joined the guild and became a member. And this was my first workshop to take!

Ana Lisa taught me a short fabric dyeing workshop when I was planning to make my bojagi DVD. And the tea dye silk from her class lead me to make the tea and coffee dyed bojagi, Awakening.IMG_3400sm.jpg

With my fellow workshop students, I was busy taking a memo, folding fabrics, stitch on the folded fabrics and stir them in the dye bath. The first day went so fast and I came back home with some homework to do. Since we have a Sunday as a break and the workshop resumes on Monday, I could take some time to prepare samples. On Monday, we dyed more samples and shared our dyed fabrics from Saturday. Every body has their own creativity and dyed fabric showed their uniqueness from the same instruction and same dye bath. I always enjoy this moment of peeking everybody's character and creativity. 

My scarf turned nicely and I was happy with it!

After the workshop some of us went out for dinner with Ana Lisa and headed to the EBHQ guild meeting place. At the meeting, Ana Lisa gave a talk and it was beautiful! Her speech was wonderful and her images of her works were stunning. There was Yoshiko Wada, the president of world shibori network came to support her student (She taught Ana Lisa in 1975!)

My weekend was another eye waking experience and positive distraction for my own works!
