cotton bedsheets, natural fabrics

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

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 three different traditional shibori techniques, inlcuding kumo, which involves tying and binding your fabric, itajime, which involves clamping your fabric, and arashi, which involves wrapping the fabric around a pole to create striking lines. We will provide 1 yard of reclaimed natural cotton fabric for each technique (3 yards total). 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!
