About the event

In this workshop we’ll learn the techniques of the shibori pattern making process using indigo dye with bind-and-resist techniques. Shibori, a richly cultural cloth dyeing method, originated in Japan in the 8th century and utilizes a plant-based indigo dye vat for beginner-to-advanced dye methods. Every detail of shibori represents a thoughtful and intentional action made by an artist’s hands.

You will create a variety of pieces that can be used to make pillow covers, cushions and home decor such as kitchen towels.   

Feel free to bring along a natural fiber tank or teeshirt if you would like to up-cycle it.

Please wear comfortable non-precious clothes and be prepared to get your hands dirty (though gloves are provided).
