Celebrating the visual languages of PEOPLE, COMMUNITY, CULTURE, and ENVIRONMENT through the global practice of resist-dye traditions and innovations, keeping in mind authenticity, reciprocity, and networking.
If you’re looking for a shibori class this summer, NYC seems to be a hotbed of options. We’ve got a couple classes by artist / clothing designer Shabd (posted earlier here), and a class in July by Brooklyn-based designer Katrin Reifeiss (whose classes we’ve posted about before here).
Whether you’re looking for an intensive or want a playful, compact 1-day class where you’ll walk away with your own self-created napkins (Shabd, July 28, ) or scarves (Katrin, July 1), you’re in luck.
