SHIBORI (Indigo Dye Workshop)

February 4, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

Led by Heather Exley

Join us in this textile class and have fun with shibori, a
resist dyeing technique from Japan and indigo, a natural
dye extracted from plants with a distinctive blue color.
Begin to explore the in nite techniques to clamp, tie, bind, fold, stitch, and compress fabric to create a resist, then dye with indigo. Make wearable scarves using these techniques.

Two silk scarves are included in the workshop fee. Additional scarves may be purchased from the instructor for $5.00 each. Students may also bring a pre-washed white cotton garment of their own to dye.

$50 members, $60 non-members. Pre-registration required.
