Date: 3/9/2019 Saturday
Instructor: Kate Eggleston
Age: Teens (13+)
Price: $65 per person (for one-day 3 hour workshop)
Discover the beauty of indigo shibori during our adult/teen workshop! This workshop for ages 13 and older is a great opportunity for a mixed-ages creative social outlet: take this alone or with friends and experience vivid satisfying results! Shibori is a series of Japanese resist dye techniques which create unique patterns on fabric by folding and binding. Students will produce an array of designs dyed in indigo. The instructor will teach the basic methods for shibori as well as how to dye with synthetic indigo. The possibilities are endless: see below in the "Students Must Bring" section for project suggestions.
Class size: minimum of 5 people to run workshop, maximum of 10 people
What is included:
Dyeing tools, indigo dye vats, aprons, practice fabric, and other items needed for the workshop will be provided.
STUDENTS MUST BRING:
tudents should bring: 8-10 small/medium items to dye that are pre-washed, light-colored or white, and made of 100% natural fiber. Natural fiber items can be made of cotton, wool, silk, hemp, etc. Some popular items to dye are scarves, baby onesies, t-shirts, dish towels, white pillow covers, and fabric cut by the yard. Thick fabrics, such as denim, are slightly harder to work with so softer fabrics would be good for beginners. Please wear clothes that can get dirty and bring a pair of long cuffed rubber kitchen gloves. *Food and beverage is encouraged!
