Hybrid Workshops

Slow Fiber Studios is offering Hybrid Workshops
by Master artisans around the globe:

Are you a serious beginner or experienced dyer? Interested to learn textile techniques and/or deepen your conceptual/creative foundations with historical and cultural understanding? Will you enjoy sharing your work for communal critiques and suggestions, and exchange with others for inspiration?

Our international workshops are taught virtually by master artisans on topics such as shibori and natural dyeing and will be streamed through Zoom Webinar. A small group of fully vaccinated participants will be welcomed at the SFS Annex in Berkeley with indigo vats for their use. You can bring your own laptop, and the Annex will have a large monitor as well as a staff with a camera capturing participants’ work to show to the instructor.

Recordings from both sessions and all documents and PowerPoint presentations will be shared with the class and the students who are in different time zones. During the week between two sessions, you will be given assignments and may ask questions using an online Google Form which will be answered and added in the Q&A document which will be shared with the students. The students of indigo workshops and shibori workshops are invited to a PRIVATE FaceBook Group to post your progress, images, and questions.
