Studio Caroline works with cloth woven from natural fibers (cotton, linen, silk) and natural indigo dye to create authentic, hand-dyed clothing, pillows, and table linens. A French native, Caroline's expressive use of color and pattern follows the Japanese shibori tradition in which she was trained and block printing. Each piece she creates has it's own soul as the fabric absorbs the dye according to a set pattern.

I learned so much about natural dyes and all the beautiful colors that they produce when dyeing silk. I loved learning the techniques to create endless patterns and designs. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and artistic gifts and talents with me so that I could step into your world of creativity, art and beauty for the afternoon.  I love both of the beautiful silk scarves that I was able to take home from the workshop.  I’ll look forward to participating in another class soon.
