Come learn the basics of Shibori dyeing. This Japanese style of resistance fabric dyeing 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 fibres will accept dye, so be sure to steer away from synthetics. You can choose to dye simple fabric yardage or ready-made items. For the most traditional shibori look, go with solid white fabric. Cotton responds really well to indigo dye, and is a great choice for your first attempts. PLEASE KEEP YOUR PRE-WASHED FABRIC TO NO LARGER THAN 4x4 ft. If time permits, multiple pieces can be dyed.
All other materials included.
