(105) Stitching and Dyeing the Shibori Way
Shibori is the Japanese term for the stitching and binding techniques that have been used to create patterns in dyeing for nearly 1000 years. Class participants will learn traditional stitching and tying methods while creating an attractive sampler piece of high quality cotton sateen fabric. This will measure approximately 18” square. We will be using a beautiful, traditional indigo dye bath for our pieces (this is so much fun to watch). After learning the basics students will have the opportunity to put their skills to work and create another piece of their own design, thus reinforcing what they have learned. Guidance and examples will be provided.Workshop #: 105
