Brooklyn-based artist Shabd Simon-Alexander taught Martha Stewart how to tie-dye, and now she can teach you this Saturday at her hand dyeing workshop in Bethesda. The textile artist and designer is the author of Tie-Dye, and the daughter of Shauna Simon, the studio owner of Bethesda's Simon Says Yoga.
So that's what brings her to Bethesda, and while Shabd is here, she's teaching a class on June 7 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. about tying, dying and shibori techniques, as well as basic color theory and design concepts for dying. The result is totally elegant tie-dyed fabrics — a far cry from the tote bags we tie-dyed in camp. See more details and sign up here.
