In this three day workshop, we’ll take a journey into the art of traditional shaped resist (shibori) and indigo dyeing.

We will begin by doing some interesting shibori techniques that require the use of some additional tools in order to make them properly. We will be working on Kumo shibori (spiderweb), on Maki-Age shibori (patterns within motifs), and on Tesuji shibori (hand pleating).
We will take a look at contemporary variations on the traditional techniques, and I will share some of my own techniques of shibori which “tweak” the traditional.
No dyeing experience necessary.
