#101 Shibori with Style by Heidi Bukoski, Wednesday 9 am to 4 pm
Workshop Description: This class will use traditional Japanese Shibori techniques to create a gorgeous tunic style top. Students will start by interpreting their desired design, be it geometric, botanical or critter based, using Shibori stitching and binding methods. There will be many examples from which to draw ideas and students are encouraged to bring pictures of things they like. After stitching and tying, we will dip our pieces in a natural indigo dye bath. Each student will choose either a short sleeved or sleeveless asymmetrical cotton top pictured. (These tops are made in the USA.) Students must let the instructor know their size (S,M,L,XL,2X,3X) 3 weeks before class so they can be ordered and prepared for use.
Participants should bring: Rubber gloves, seam ripper and/or small sharp scissors, reading glasses if you use them, thimble if you use one.
Homework: Notify instructor of size (S-3X) and style of top by July 20. firstname.lastname@example.org
Material Fee: $35 Shirt, dying materials.
Class Limit: 15
