We'll show you how all the major effects are created and hsare tips and secrets for getting outstanding results
Then on September 11, 11-12:30 (AEST), we will do a dye-along! Set up your vat and dye the pieces you have prepared during the week, or just watch and plan a beautiful blue future!

I am so excited to finally do the course. My daughter loved doing it in Canberra.
I think the kit is a good starter pack. The indigo dye is simple to use.
Thank you Alison and Shuji. I was very pleased to be doing your workshop. It was a great refresher for me. Your presentation was personal, informative and encouraging. I certainly will encourage others to be part of the experience. The kit was great and such a help having everything before you. I had a problem with Zoom from my end but it didn’t distract from the workshop. Looking forward to part 2 Thank you both
