If there’s one thing that can make a 9.0 earthquake more terrifying, it’s meltdown at a nuclear power plant. While you probably don’t have a spare helicopter or nuclear physicist to lend to Japan, you can help the earthquake relief effort by taking a Shibori workshop. The Textile Arts Center is teaching a few techniques of the traditional Japanese fabric dying method, with real indigo dye and everything. You’ll learn how to bind, stitch and fold cloth to make patterns of all different shapes.
The Textile Arts Center is donating all of the proceeds to Japan.
