A Fabric Dying Workshop for Artists

Shibori is a Japanese dyeing technique that typically involves folding, twisting or bunching cloth and binding it, then dyeing it in indigo. In this 2.5 hour workshop each participant will receive a 1/2 yard of fabric to dye and manipulate as they choose. You will learn several ways to fold and stitch the fabric to create different resist patterns.
