La Maison Bleue Craft Studio in Tbilisi, Georgia
Stepping into La Maison Bleue’s Tbilisi, Georgia storefront studio is a dazzling experience. On the color-splashed walls hang brilliant appliquéd landscapes and fabric icons, billowing painted silks cover the windows and catch the light, soft batik still lifes and upright cloth screens delineate the space and separate the showroom from the textile workshop.
For more than 20 years, five Georgian artists have been creating textiles, displaying their crafts, and teaching others in this art studio across from the Round Garden, with its splashing fountain crowned by a sculpture of the Little Prince.
La Maison Bleue Craft Studio also offers private lessons, workshops, and demonstrations in batik textile dyeing. A stop here is a prized experience for travelers interested in Georgian culture, history, and the arts.
