Hand dye a vibrantly patterned tea towel using Shibori (Japanese tie-dye) methods such as folding, binding, and tying techniques. Bring an apron and wear clothes you don’t mind getting a stray splash on.
Huong Nguyen is a visual artist with roots in the textiles industry. She holds a BFA from RISD in textile design and works in printmaking, design and other forms. Her studio work brings a contemporary aesthetic and spirit of inquiry to ancient material and design traditions, with an emphasis on the essential and hand-made. Nguyen is creating textile and paper work that uses traditional Asian craft techniques such as Shibori (Japanese tie-dye), Katagami (Japanese stencil making), and Joomchi (Korean paper felting), with shapes and colors inspired by flora and fauna of Santa Monica.
