This three-day workshop will focus on beginner-level shibori with organic indigo dyeing. Shibori is an ancient resist-dyeing method that produces unique patterns through stitching, binding, wrapping and other methods. Although shibori has been practiced in Japan, there are versions found in cultures all over the world, such as adire in Africa and bandhani in India. In this workshop you will make a series of resist-dyed fabrics touching upon all of the basic shibori techniques and learn to make an organic indigo vat from "scratch". At the end of the workshop you will have a number of finished scarves and bandanas. FMI here.
