A group of creative women gathered together on Sunday at Amy’s Handmade Place to make their own hand dyeing silk scarves. Peggy (@peggythompson) listened attentively while I showed examples.
I demonstrated how to fold scarves to create different shibori designs. These pictures show glimpses of Amy’s beautiful studio space, located in the back of her shop: Amy’s Handmade Place. There is even a small deck outside the back where we enjoyed showing off our scarves.
Wendy (Pook & Thy) mixing up the dyes – turquoise and fuchsia for her scarf.
Scarves were rinsed but not yet washed and dried. They couldn’t resist showing off their handiwork!
Washed, and ironed. Lovely and soft. It was a fun day showing these eager students how to dye silk scarves.

Amy and I in her store, can you see another one of my hand dyed scarves in the background?
There is another workshop scheduled for June 11th, join us!
