I am in Yokohama, Japan visiting my family. Since having a New Year is important part to Japanese, people decorate materials in front of house, shrine, and temples. Trees on my family's garden were nicely trimmed by a gardener. Now ready for the New Year! Happy New Year.

Natural dyes are very fascinating! Especially over dyeing creates deep and harmonious colors. I'd love to share some work done by natural dyes in the Nui Shibori with Natural Dyes class at Evanston Art Center.
