Shibori Painting

Hi to all. I am sorry for not posting for a long while. Of course the whole family has had a cold for a couple of weeks now. They take it in turns , not all together. Sick people are time consuming!!!! I, however, being a mother, resisted the germ because I am a superwomen.
I have been attempting to participate in an online shibori class offered by Shiborigirl. I have long admired her work and was pretty chuffed when I stumbled upon this class. Online classes I think are difficult to run well. Students need feedback to effectively learn. I consider feedback and the time it takes to give it one of the more important aspects. Otherwise, students might as well buy a book instead. Videos are also a great addition for those of us who are visual learners. Not necessary though if the person who runs the workshop has good pictures. I think Shiborigirl has done a great job, and even though I am unable to practise at the moment, I know that when I do, I wont be left feeling let down by lack of information. Check out her work!
