While in Los Angeles I went to an amazing aMAZing DIY retreat in Palm Springs, where we learned all sorts of skills from the experts. The day started with a champagne toast with the ladies of (No Subject), then crafting/weaving/dying workshops with the mountains in the background, ending with a delish dinner with the fantastic crew from Levi’s. 
Do-it-yourself in the desert, how could it get any better! 
I am a huge fan of the DIYing duo Honestly WTF, and was excited to try their very first DIY: Shibori
More pictures of the steps after the break, and jump over to their site for details on how to dye.
