Shibori and Indigo Dyeing Fiber Workshop
Saturday, July 16, 2022
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. We begin by twisting, folding, stitching, clamping, wrapping, and compressing several kinds of fabric into a variety of shapes. Then we dip the fabric into a magical indigo vat to produce shapes in colors ranging from pale blue to dark denim. Finally, we unwrap the dyed pieces to reveal stunning patterns – both simple and complex.
Students 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
