Come learn the basics of Shibori dying. This Japanese style of resistance fabric dying includes binding, stitching, folding, twisting and compressing the fabric before submerging it in indigo ink, resulting in beautiful, complex, one of a kind designs. During this three hour workshop, you will be shown the different techniques involved in the fabric preparation, before having the chance to dye your own fabric.
PLEASE BRING: Fabric you wish you dye. Only natural fibers will accept dye, so be sure to steer away from synthetics. You can choose to dye simple fabric yardage which you can then make into anything at all, or you can dye ready-made fabric. For the most traditional shibori look, go with solid white fabric. Cotton responds really well to indigo dye, so cotton is a great choice for your first attempts. PLEASE KEEP YOUR PRE-WASHED FABRIC TO NO LARGER THAN 4x8 ft.
