shibori dyeing, Itajime resist method
Pillowcases cases looking tired? Strange spot on your favorite tee? Shibori is the answer! 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. Bring one or two items to transform using the Itajime method of resist, a technique that utilizes shaped blocks to create bold, geometric designs. Please be sure your pieces are natural, plant based fibers like linen, cotton, or hemp. Items like napkins and tote bags are a great size for this class. We’ll be using indigo dye to dip into, a vibrant, striking blue you’re sure to love.
