Shibori Indigo Dye & Sashiko Stitching Intensive

ID : 8679   
« back to classes page

This intensive workshop will cover technique, method, and application of traditional shibori indigo dyeing and sashiko stitching. Sashiko,a form of Japanese folk embroidery, originated in ancient Japan. Its name means “little stabs”—a reference to the plain running stitch used to create patterns.  We will also experiment with creating patterns through centuries-old binding and color resist techniques. We will brew a vat of indigo dye, set the dye, and finish pieces with sashiko stitching.

Students will create beautiful fiber arts piece of shibori. This piece will be a 14" x 36" linen panel that they have shibori dyed and sashiko stitched in their own design, that can be mounted as a wall hanging, used as a tabletop display, or turned into another textile project. In addition, students will have the knowledge and skill to continue their exploration of indigo dyeing and shibori techniques on their own.
