‘The doors to a myriad of possibilities are opened when transforming a design into a repeat as Jane will show as she shares her passion for pattern’.

Indigo and shibori lectures/talks.

'Indigo and the Tightening Thread'

'Bolts from the Blue'

Based on her book, this talk takes you on a journey through the twists, turns and tweaks of pattern making. It includes patterning with shibori as well as patterns from her own computer generated illustrations.

All presentations are with PowerPoint, and Jane can bring her own laptop, projector  and screen if necessary. Please contact her should you wish to book a date. Textiles and Callishibori products are brought to every presentation.
