Event description

Description

Learn the beautiful and fun technique of Indigo Shibori Dyeing! In this workshop you will learn about the natural dye Indigo and how it has been used for thousands of years to dye fabric; you'll learn different Shibori techniques to create different patterns on fabric and have the opportunity to dye your own items!

Guests should bring two items of their own to dye. These items should be 100% natural fiber, e.g., t-shirts, tea towels, socks, or pillow cases.

Shibori is an ancient Japanese technique that began around the 8th century, during the Edo period. The techniques create patterned fabric either by folding, binding, twisting, threading or compressing fabric. This creates a resistance where the Indigo dye will not permeate some of the fabric, thus creating a design.'
