Clay for resist paste

I found the Moroccan Rhassoul or Ghassoul clay, easily available (at least in the US), not expensive, online through many sites:, both micronized and non (traditionally used)profile: http://www.mountainroseherbs.com/learn/rhassoul.php

    Hello, I purchased the Natural Dye Workshop DVD and have enjoyed it very much. I would like to access the workshop notes that are referenced on the dvd but have not heard back from the email address that is provided. What does one need to do to gain access to the DVD notes listed above and referred to in the DVD. The DVD is great but I think that the notes will complete the value of the purchase with data referred to in the DVD but not explained. Regards Deb Mc

      @ Deb, Glossary is available under DVD Extras (need password). If you dont have password, email ndw [AT] shibori.org. My big apology for being late on compilation of Chapter Notes + Bibliography. I would like viewers to submit with own annotation so that we will not wast our resources buying books that are not so useful which I have done in the past. I am co-chairing the 8th International Shibori Symposium in Hong Kong this DEC – Michel Garcia will be a speaker & workshop leader. I hope to be able to complete the Reference Notes as soon as possible (end of September). Our Slow Fiber Studio program in 2012 includes one in Provence with Michel Garcia. I hope you will have a chance to study with him somewhere. Let me know where you live. Yoshiko I. Wada, Producer of the Natural Dye FIlm
