About This Activity

All materials provided; $45 paid to instructor on first day Shibori means “Shape Resist Dyeing” and allows for sculpted fabrics as well as textural patterns. Shibori is often referred to as the origami of the fabric dye world. Think a much more elaborate version of tie-dye. In this weekend workshop we will explore a variety of resist methods as we wrap, stitch and clamp the fabrics before immersing them in color. This will also be an introduction to dyeing with the natural plant Indigo. Mary will provide pots and pans and we’ll set up dye baths for “instant gratification”. You will walk away with samples and a finished piece. Please bring gloves and an apron or old clothes.
