Shibori is the Japanese word for a variety of ways of embellishing textiles by shaping cloth and securing it before dying. The word comes from the verb root shiboru, "to wring, squeeze, press". There are an infinite number of ways to manipulate fabric for shibori, each way resulting in different resist designs amd patterns.
In this workshop we will explore 6 different traditional methods and techniques. Each student will get to dye their own set of dinner napkins and can also bring one personal item (natural fiber, non bulky).
Along with sips and snacks, a set of white cotton dinner napkins and all other materials needed will be provided.
Come make a beautiful mess with us!!
