Sorry this Class is now completely full.
We are pleased to present our first dye workshop! Make a beautiful cotton scarf or bring your own items to dye in Shibori technique.
Shibori is a Japanese term for several methods of dyeing cloth with a pattern by binding, stitching, folding, twisting, compressing it, or capping. There is an infinite number of ways one can bind, stitch, fold, twist, or compress cloth for shibori, and each way results in very different patterns. Each method is used to achieve a certain result, but each method is also used to work in harmony with the type of cloth used. Therefore, the technique used in shibori depends not only on the desired pattern, but the characteristics of the cloth being dyed. Also, different techniques can be used in conjunction with one another to achieve even more elaborate results.
Our dear friends Kyra Lehman and Ken Urbina pour all their love, passion, and souls into these kids and their performances. They are two of the most inspiring people I know and part of the Presidio Motel Family. Please help them kick start their company by donating today. As little as $10 will make a difference.
Twenty-Four Blackbirds Chocolates are inspired by traditional chocolate making techniques, and endeavor to make artisanal confections that are truly hand-crafted. They first source raw, unroasted cacao beans from single origin estates, and then hand sort to remove any beans that are flawed or otherwise do not meet their strict standards of quality. They then develop roast profiles to accentuate the subtle, and often delicate, flavor characteristics inherent in beans from each origin. Their ingredients are then refined in a traditional stone melanger, tempered and hand-poured into molds. They make every effort to use the highest quality ingredients available, and their chocolate, made in Santa Barbara, California, is always prepared in small batches with no emulsifiers or additives.
On Saturday, July 16 from 3-7 p.m. , the Presidio Motel is hosting “100 Days,” a photography show to benefit two non-profit childbirth organizations.
In January, two local photographers, Layla Marleitner and Virginia Bobro, set out to take one photograph of a single household object every day in a different setting for 100 days using their their iPhones or Hipstamatic camera applications. We hope to see you here !
