Each workshop participant will learn various Indigo + Shibori techniques, dye their items and find out more about indigo and its history. Shibori is an ancient Japanese method of folding and clamping fabric to make patterns. This workshop takes place outdoors.
PREPARE FOR THE WORKSHOP
Bring one personal item* to transform including apparel or small home goods. Ideas include a pair of napkins, a tee shirt, pillow case, a summer dress, linen pants, a scarf, or a small table runner. The items don’t have to be white, in fact, some of the most exciting transformations happen on items originally with a print or other color. Loved, gently used or stained items are also an excellent choice. Your personal item should be made from natural fibers such as cotton or linen. Included in the workshop, one set of cotton tea towels for each student.
*Note: Unfortunately large and heavy items such as bedding and rugs cannot be accommodated at this time and will not be dyed.
All tools are provided, just bring your items to dye and clothes you don't mind dirtying up! DYE WILL GET ON YOUR CLOTHES AND SHOES.
All gatherings and workshop purchases are final.
