Indigo dyeing workshop.
Indigo tie dye. You’ve seen it on dresses, home decor, macrame, just about anything that can be dipped I’ve seen turned into beautiful bohemian pieces of art. This past spring (yes it’s taken me a solid 6 months to get these photos up on the blog) I had the amazing opportunity to attend a Japanese Shirbori dyeing worksop by the indigo expert, Juniper & Fir. I love getting messy (my boyfriend can attest to the piles of watercolor palettes and paints lying around the house) and any type of artistic event that can inspire me to keep creating, I’m always down.
Dowel rods, rubber bands, string and small wooden pieces create millions of different pattern varieties.
Using little discs clamped onto the fabric can create awesome little hexagon flower patterns.
I blue myself!
A cute little vintage tank I’ve had in the garage for a while needed a little makeover…
Horizontally folded and then wrapped in bands creates the look below.
Can I borrow your living room, Tina? What a perfectly curated space!
Besides being the expert in anything shibori, Juniper & Fir is holding a macrame workshop coming up this Sunday here in LA!
I can imagine an entire wall of uniquely dyed shibori squares. Thanks Juniper & Fir and Tina DeLeon for hosting such an inspiring and creative event!
For future workshops keep up with Juniper & Fir’s events page!

I’ve always loved the look of Shibori, but unfortunately, I actually hate getting messy (because I hate the cleanup). I’ll be happy to buy finished products though.

I would love to be able to learn to do this! And I think I just might have to designate a wall in the house for some dyed shibori squares!
That’s so amazing!! I tried doing tie dye a few years back but I wasn’t really that great at it haha
It looks really beautiful though, congrats!! 🙂
Annnnd I would also totally go to the macrame workshop if I was in the area 😉
