One of the earliest written descriptions of shibori dates to 238 CE! Shibori is an ancient Japanese dyeing technique that involves folding, twisting or bunching cloth and then binding it to create incredible patterns.
Learn a variety of Shibori folding techniques to create brilliant patterns with indigo-dyed textiles. You will use wood boards, clips, rubber bands and other items to fold fabric into different shapes. Then you will dip the fabric into indigo dye and watch the pattern develop as it hits the air. Everyone will receive a silk scarf and two tea towels to dye. You can also bring additional white items to dye if you like. Small items like baby onesies and socks work best. You will be amazed at all the incredible patterns you can create!
*We will wear gloves, but be sure to dress in clothing that can get blue dye on it.
