Skills you’ll learn:
Shibori dyeing, kumo and itajime resist techniques

Shibori, aka Japanese tie dye, is a multifaceted art where you can tie, fold, and stitch your way to a whole new look for tired linens, clothes and more. In this class, participants will get to sample several different traditional shibori techniques, inlcuding kumo, which involves tying and binding your fabric, and itajime, which involves clamping your fabric. We will provide approximately 2 square feet of fabric for each dyeing technique. We’ll be using indigo dye to dip into a vibrant, striking blue you’re sure to love.

Use these techniques outside of class to revive your old sheets, pillowcases or articles of clothing!

This is an in-person class that will take place outside in Perennial’s education garden. For vaccinated folks, masks are optional for outdoor classes, but are required for those that are not vaccinated. Our full policies can be found here.
