elin noble is an internationally recognized textile artist so i was thrilled to get the chance to see her studio and meet her. it was a three hour class. i really enjoyed the entire process from picking out a shibori scarf pattern, gathering the fabric through the heavy duty string, dipping it in an indigo vat, unraveling the scarf to see the results, rinsing out the excess indigo in a water and vinegar bath, to drying the scarf and seeing the final product- a wearable piece of art.
it was a fun way to spend a saturday morning. i could get used to these art classes for adults. haystack mountain school of craft i'm talking to you.
