    textileAge:  Adult
    Time:  10:00 am - 11:30 am 
    Fee: $100.00 
    Teacher: Kiyomi Yatsuhashi

    This class will focus on the Japanese craft of shibori using indigo dyeing.  You'll experiment creating patterns, textures and designs using resist techniques such as stitching, folding, wrapping, clamping, etc.  We'll make art that is beautiful and functional (table runners, scarf, napkins are all possibilities).

    textile dyeing

    As a Japanese-American, my recent work has become more deeply connected to my heritage especially my parents' family businesses in Japanese antiques & kimono design. I’ve been working with Japanese traditional dyeing techniques such as indigo, rozome wax-resist, katazome stencil dyeing for over 20 years. 

    "After several years living in Japan, I feel a special connection to my ancestors and their deep appreciation for nature in each season and cycle. Besides my love of natural indigo color, my textiles in shades of blue reflect my fascination with realms of nature such as the sky and sea, and movements in clouds, waves and wind." Tufts University / Museum School (BA/BFA/diploma), Kyoto City University of Art (MFA).

    Teacher:  Kirti

    Jump on in a fun, learning and knitting circle! Whether you are just beginning or are experienced and looking to tackle more advanced projects - this is a great place to knit!  


    If it's knitting you're interested in you can learn (or polish up on) the basics of casting on / off, learning to knit and purl, gauge with swatches, and learning to read a pattern. This is a great first step to learn and gain confidence in picking up small or large knitting projects for everyone in the family and friends! If you already know the basics and want to complete a new project, Kirti will guide you in the process introducing new skills as needed.


    Or, if you prefer to focus on crochet. Beginners can learn (or polish up on) the basics of crochet single chain, half double crochet, double crochet and triples. Practice the basics to quickly conquer lovely patterns - shell patterns, granny squares and much more. Make coasters, join squares to make scarves or shawls, finger-less mittens, caps, C2C (corner-to-corner shawl) and any other project that you might have going. Come with an idea of a project you want to tackle or get suggestions from Kirti. Either way Kirti will support you every step of the way. You will be surprised at how much you can achieve in a short period of time.
