Shibori and Indigo Dyeing Fiber Workshop
Saturday, July 8, 2023
IN PERSON at Shaker Village

Learn how to create vivid blue designs on cloth through the fascinating technique of Shibori with local instructor and fiber artist Mary DeLano.

You will begin by twisting, folding, stitching, clamping, wrapping and compressing several kinds of fabric into a variety of shapes. Then you will dip the fabric into a magical indigo vat to produce shades ranging from pale blue to denim. Finally, you will unwrap the dyed pieces to reveal stunning patterns – both simple and complex.

Students who have taken a class from Mary in the past may contact her to get instructions for stitching more complicated designs before they come to class.

You will take home a minimum of a dyed scarf, two napkins, and several small samples.

No experience required.  This class also produces guaranteed laughter and new friends.

Participants need to bring:

-Small sharp scissors
-Tight fitting dish washing gloves
-Feel free to bring along your own additional fabric to try out
-Bagged lunch & water bottle

All other materials will be supplied.

This class is planned to be outdoors under tents.
Class size: 10
