Advanced Shibori & Sashiko Stitching

ID : 13449   
« back to classes page
ClassGraphic This intensive workshop will cover technique, method, and application of the traditional Japanese folk art Shibori indigo dyeing and Sashiko embroidery, and will cover complex binding styles beyond basic Shibori folding. You will experiment with creating patterns through centuries-old binding and color resist techniques, brew a vat of indigo dye, and set the dye. You will finish your pieces with sashiko stitching, a traditional embroidery method that creates simple geometric patterns that are not only pleasing to the eye, but functional in strengthening material. The end product will be a beautiful fiber arts piece of Shibori made with a linen panel that you have Shibori-dyed and Sashiko-stitched in your own design, that can be mounted as a wall hanging, used as a tabletop display, or utilized in another textile project. You will go home with the knowledge and skill to continue your exploration of indigo dyeing and Shibori and Sashiko techniques at home!

This class is geared toward students who have already taken the Intro to Shibori class, or have some experience working with the medium. You will be spending a lot of time planning and preparing your material, but students are welcome to use their indigo and time to dye any additional projects.

The dye process can be a bit messy, so please bring an apron or wear something you don’t mind getting splashed with indigo.
