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 Kumo method of resist, a technique that involves tying and binding your piece to create intricate, lace-like designs. Please be sure your pieces are natural, plant based fibers like linen, cotton, or hemp. Items such as napkins or a tote bag are perfect for this class. We’ll be using indigo dye to dip into, a vibrant, striking blue you’re sure to love.
