Fabric Dyeing: Shibori

Shibori is a method of dyeing fabric based on traditional Japanese resist techniques used to create wonderful patterns and textures. In this class, we’ll explore different methods including pole-wrapping, clamping, stitching, folding, and twisting to create complex and dynamic fabric. You will have 2 days to dye and over-dye to create dynamic patterned fabric or garments.

Note: Wear old clothes and/or an apron.

Dyeing for Color, Pattern & Texture

Create unique and dynamic fabric using fiber-reactive dyes and a variety of techniques including easy to wash out resists such as soy wax, flour paste, gel glue, oatmeal, and more. These resists are easy to use, wash out with hot water, and provide an endless array of patterns and textures. You’ll have two days to dye, over-dye, and play with an infinite variety of colors, textures, and patterns.

Note: Wear old clothes and/oran apron.
