What an amazing journey! The workshop has been my go-to for relaxation and enjoyment during this crazy past year. The entire program is so well produced that I feel like I can go forward and keep learning from my experiences with the indigo process.  

Sophena and Danielle are a terrific team and contributed immensely to the journey! Thank you everyone at Maiwa  that was associated with the workshop!

Thank you so much for this course! It was very informative, approachable and inspiring. It has been a great pleasure learning for you both, thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge with us. I can't wait to put into practice what I've learned!

Such a fantastic class, I don't want this to be over.  I have delayed the last module for 2 weeks, just to savor a little longer. Great job by all. Thank you for this opportunity.
— Beth

I have enjoyed this class. I have watched the videos several times and read through the Q&A.  I have learned LOTS! Thanks for being pandemic creative and doing this as an online class.  I would not have been able to attend this in person. I also love that I have this class at my finger tips for three years.

Big thank you to Sophena and Dani for a wonderful class - perfect pacing through this winter's lockdown. The weekly introduction of new topics gave us time to experiment and learn all the new skills without the rush of speedier workshops. The Q & A sections are a big help too.

Sophena & Danielle, Thanks so much for a great workshop. I'm not new to Shibori and Indigo but I learned a ton. I felt that this workshop was even better than some in person courses. Here we were really in charge of our own vats and got to learn what to do, and when to do it. It was great having a few vats going at the same time and I loved seeing the subtle differences in the shades. I feel much more confident and in charge of my blues and I have some fresh inspiration when it comes to the resists.   
— Kathi

I really don't want this to end! What an amazing workshop. The next best thing to 'real' workshops, with beautifully filmed instruction and expert, patient guidance through all our queries. I can highly recommend this for anyone interested in indigo. Thank you all at the Maiwa team for creating such a great resource for us.
