CRAVE WORKSHOPS ARE AN INSPIRED GATHERING
FOR THE NEW CREATIVE CLASS. BUILDING A COMMUNITY AROUND ART AND FOOD, WE WANT TO BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER TO SHARE AN AFTERNOON.

 

SAMPLE ITINERARY FROM PREVIOUS WORKSHOP

Shibori is a Japanese dyeing technique that involves folding, twisting or bunching cloth and binding it, then dyeing it in indigo. Our workshop on Saturday, April 29 will teach how to make Turkish towels with Shibori folding and dyeing methods. Our workshop Sunday, April 30 will utilize Indigo resist methods and stencils to create modern tabletop linens.

We will create our own patterns on provided fabric, dye the fabric in indigo vats, and have a chance to connect with other creatives in a sunny backyard. 

The day will be filled with enjoyable crafting, delicious food and good conversation. The day starts around noon with a gathering around the patio table, enjoying an alfresco meal. Lunch is followed by the Shibori lesson to review the process, review samples and showcase methods. We will be learning how to use clamp and resist methods to create beautiful geometric home textiles. The workshop continues in the intimate backyard to inspire conversations and connections. The workshop ends with coffee, dessert and maybe even roasting smores around the firepit. Nibbles and drinks are provided through the day.  

The Craft
We will be making (1) Turkish towel made of 100% cotton.

The Craving
The menu is still in the works, but we are playing with the idea of offering a Stumptown pour over coffee bar with a Matcha Pound Cake with Almond Glaze, in addition to appetizers and light bites which will include some homemade dips (think: Carrot, Walnut & Red Lentil Hummus), avo toasts with delicious toppings, along with a crisp, colorful salad, and more treats.

The Deets
We will be crafting in a cozy, awesome indoor/outdoor space in Venice Beach, so dress in layers and make sure it's something you don't mind getting a little indigo on.
