On April 11, the Hunter Design School in Australia will be teaching a Shibori workshop and I am so pleased to be featured on their blog as an inspiration source for this upcoming class. They describe this school in the following mission statement, “HDS is the destination for tactile creative training. If you want to study design at a registered training organisation, immerse yourself and learn by “doing” not “watching”, aren’t afraid to get messy, want to be inspired, need to challenge yourself and are ready to fulfil your destiny… then look no further.” Sounds pretty compelling to me!
I am eyeing this Proud Mary Indigo top today that was handmade by artisans in Guatemala.
Get it here.
Usually when we go to the desert we camp, but this geodesic dome could change that if we ever get to Joshua Tree.

I am all about the vibe and spirit of the textile artist and maker Karina Manarin. Based in Arizona, Karina is inspired by the textural, vast desert landscapes. Her hand-dyed pieces vary in color, from rich indigo to desert bloom peach. I also love the silhouettes of her clothing, which are effortless and perfect for this upcoming summer.
