Shibori Indigo Dyeing

ID : 8678   
« back to classes page

Indigo is one of the richest and oldest pigments used in dyeing, from ancient times to today’s blue jeans. In this class, you will learn the technique of Japanese Shibori indigo dyeing, a brief timeline of the historical background and science behind the use of Indigo dye across cultures, and create a unique pair of throw pillow covers - all in one day!  Learn to mix indigo dye, then experience the excitement and anticipation of the Japanese art of Itajime Shibori, folding and binding the fabric to create geometric patterns. You may also bring small items to "free dye” at the end of class, using your newly acquired Shibori skills!

Come experience the magic of this ancient dyeing technique, and go home with the skills and knowledge to create your own unique Shibori projects! You will go home with at least two 20" x 20" square pillow covers and any “free dye” items you brought to class.

Please check the Class Letter for information about what to bring to class and other important details.
