Event description

Description

For those who have taken the Shibori Indigo dyeing workshop, we look forward to seeing you again at this advanced class! We will be once again brewing a vat of indigo, and this time we will be covering three traditional styles of ancient Japanese Shibori. Together we will experiment with Arashi (storm) Shibori by wrapping and scrunching our material on a long pole, Kumo (spiderweb) Shibori by binding pebbles into our material, and Nui (stitched) Shibori with needle and thread over a hand drawn design. We will use one or more of these techniques to design and create a one of a kind 12 x 36 inch linen wall hanging, which we will dye, dry, and finish by fixing to a length of local driftwood.

Light refreshments will be served, and each guest is welcome to bring a small piece or two of their own to dye at the end, which must be 100% natural fiber.

What is Shibori?

Shibori is the ancient Japanese technique of folding, twisting, bunching, and binding fabric before dyeing it in a vat of indigo.

What is Indigo?

Indigo is a dye made from the pigments of plants found in the Indigofera family. It has been used for thousands of years and across many cultures to achieve a range of beautiful blue hues. Indigo dye is an all natural and organic compound that is safe for even the most delicate skin. It is also 100% machine washable!
