Saturday, March 4th, 12:30 – 4:30pm – Skills & Instruction Day
Saturday, March 11th, 1:30-5:30pm – Guided Independent Studio Day
This two day class 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:
FOR BOTH CLASSES:
○ Please wear clothing that can get permanently dirty
(i.e. old shirt, pants, and/or an apron, etc.)
FOR SECOND CLASS ONLY:
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. The number of articles to bring really depends on how much of a workload you feel you can complete during the second day of class.
