Event Details

Stop what you’re doing. Google image search “Itajime.” Are you as excited as we are?

This traditional form of folded Shibori resist dyeing yields mesmerizing, vivid geometric patterns that make us want to pull all our curtains off their rods and crease them into kaleidoscopic masterpieces! In this workshop we will cover the basics of this versatile technique. The dyes provide an authentic experience of this age old process, with beautifully diverse results!

All materials provided, including silk scarves, silk handkerchiefs, or silk pocket squares.

Urban Threads Studio - A Not For Profit Organization

Who we are!

The world around us is changing quickly but our need for communal gatherings in a nurturing and creative setting is not. Urban Threads Studio is a D-I-Y (do it yourself) collaborative makerspace that hopes to introduce you to the wonderful ancient craft of sewing and textile art with a 21st-century twist.  We provide all of the equipment, tools, and supplies and you bring your imagination, creativity and above all patience. You may just want to rediscover a skill you learned as a child, experience the calm energy of a day of crafting or pick up an altogether new or more advanced skill like dyeing or felting. Join us in the adventure and: register for a workshop, celebrate your next birthday with a textile art party, sign up the kids for summer camp, ask us about after school programs or enroll your youth organization in one of our many programs.  And if you just want to stop by and say hello, we have Open House every 3rd Friday of the month.

If you need a personal consultation please call our Artistic Director, Michelle Santoro, at (708) 717-3740 Ext. 1
