Shibori Indigo Dyeing 


Learn how to create vivid blue designs on cloth.  We begin by twisting, folding, stitching, clamping, wrapping and compressing fabric into a variety of shapes.   Then we dip the fabric into a magical indigo vat to produce shades ranging from pale blue to denim.  Finally, we unwrap the dyed pieces to reveal stunning patterns – both simple and complex.  You will leave class with several pieces of dyed fabric and the knowledge and confidence to explore this exciting process at home.

Students need to bring small sharp scissors and tight fitting dishwashing gloves to class.  Students should wear old clothes or bring an apron.
