Shibori is the Japanese art of resist-dyeing using traditional methods used for centuries. In this class, students will receive an introduction to three techniques using indigo dye.
Objective: For students to learn three different Shibori techniques used in Japanese textiles, and using a (version of a) traditional Indigo dye, dye material with three different patterns.
All materials are included, however, if you would like to Shibori dye one of your own garments (each student will dye 3 12″x12″ squares of cotton) please bring a 100% natural fabric, and so we have enough dye for everyone, please only one garment per person.
