Skilled Techniques Shibori
Although this workshop is a continuation from the first class, no prior knowledge of Shibori techniques or indigo dyeing is necessary to participate. Great class for people that are familiar with fibers and experienced in other dyeing skills.
Come expand your Shibori vocabulary! We will begin with origami and simple paper folding exercises to understand how Shibori folding and binding techniques directly dictate surface design. We’ll breeze right past the squares and triangles covered in the first workshop and learn how to create intentional patterns based on hexagons. Stitch resists, including Nui, Makimui, and Komasu will also be demonstrated. We will dye our fabrics in a vat of natural indigo and discuss how to tend to the vat. Please bring the natural fibers you would like to dye (cotton, linen, silk).
