Dyeing Workshop in Kyoto

I (taka) went to Japan last month, then I visited a dyeing/weaving studio in Kyoto. It was my third time visiting this place. I did the "Kusaki-zome" (dyeing using plants) workshop. I learned about natural dyeing using different techniques.
50mins drive from Kyoto city center (you can catch a bus too)
choose materials and decide design/colour
the lecture of colours
the process is simple
very simple but hard work
have a rest...
so fun!
