Shibori Workshop by Edie $130

Learn the fundamentals of this historic pattern making process.

Learn folding & tied and clamping resist techniques. 

Instruction will be given on how to create patterns using Arashi, Kumo and Itajime techniques.

Dye natural fibers in a plant derived Indigo vat. 

We will provide all dye supplies and several sample squares per student plus a cotton shopping bag to experiment with. There will be an organic cotton gauze scarf available for optional purchase.

You are welcome to bring anything to throw in the vat that is a natural fiber (cotton, linen, silk, rayon, ramie, wool). You could bring old linens, lace, silks, yarns, white canvas tennis shoes, T shirts, fine cotton nighties. Please don't bring anything bulky such as curtains and duvet covers as this limits the amount of dye in the Vat.

Please bring rubber gloves and wear old clothes or an apron.
