Come and learn the beautiful and ancient Japanese resist-dyeing technique known as Shibori. In this class you will learn the basics of creating an indigo dye-bath using pre-reduced indigo crystals and Shibori techniques to generate unique patterns and designs.
Each piece will be unique and unexpected and use four different patterns/ styles, so you’ll learn several styles and methods. Shibori is fun to learn and something you can use at home to revamp your own furnishings and clothing!
What you'll get
- All dye, gloves, and folding materials provided!
what to bring
Your own material to dye! Fibre must be natural – cotton, linen, wool, silk, rayon/viscose, hemp etc, as synthetic fibres will not absorb the dye. Examples of items to bring: scarves, pillowcases, tops/blouses/tees, lengths of fabric, tea towels, napkins etc. Please limit each piece to 4′ x 4′ as larger pieces are difficult to dye.
This workshop is MESSY! Wear clothes you don’t mind getting dye on.
