Intro to Shibori

Introduction to Shibori

Saturday, September 9th, 12-5pm

This workshop is an introduction to Shibori for adults.  Shibori is a Japanese resist dye technique which creates unique patterns on fabric by folding, binding, and sewing.  Participants will create an array of designs dyed in beautiful indigo.

Students enrolled in this class should anticipate bringing the following items:

  • Rubber gloves (i.e. kitchen gloves, disposable latex, etc.) - preferably long cuffs

○ Please wear clothing that can get permanently dirty

 (i.e. old shirt, pants, and/or an apron, etc.)

  • Bring 5-10 small to medium articles of pre-washed 100% cotton plain

white/off white fabric to dye (i.e. t-shirts, leggings, baby clothes, small table runner,

small blankets, cloth napkins, bandanas, etc). The material must be lightweight

and no larger than 1 yard (cotton, muslin, silk, linen, etc).

 

 RECOMMENDATION: Check out your local thrift store (check the labels for materials!). Polyester blends can work too, but I cannot guarantee dye quality or colorfastness.
