Lecture: Ana Lisa Hedstrom Trunk Show

Ana Lisa will take us on a tour of her personal journey to mastering the art of shibori. Her work departs from traditional Japanese techniques and a stereotypical Japanese aesthetic while retaining the invention and skill found in Japanese indigo dyed shibori.  In the working “dialogue” of the studio, she incorporates western fabrics, tools and dye techniques with traditional shibori concepts.  More recently she has explored digital printing based on scanned scraps of her hand-dyed shibori.

Workshop: Sewing Machine Katano Resist  SOLD OUT!!!

In the true spirit of making traditional techniques her own, Ana Lisa has taken the shibori technique of Japanese artist Mohohiko Katano and adapted it to the sewing machine. She loosely bases the folds of fabric on origami folds and machine stitches across the folds to produce the beautifully intricate designs that appear after the dye process.  You will leave the workshop with samples of various designs that have been folded, stitched, machine sewn and dyed.
