LEVEL 1: Shibori Stitching + Indigo Dye Dip

April 18, 2019 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Students in this course will create 3 shibori patterns and then dip their stitched samples in the indigo vat! Two traditional hand stitched patterns will be created, interlinking circles and Japanese larch. The third pattern will be created using a very simple tool: rubber bands. Topics covered will include history of shibori and indigo, how to make and maintain an indigo vat and Sharon’s favorite books and tools for this beautiful art form. We’re excited to say that the kit for this class will include traditional fabric all the way from Japan! Interested in learning even more? Check out the fold and clamp shibori and indigo workshop too! We’re also developing a workshop in which students can shibori ‘kumos’, and our kumo makers are in production! Be sure to comment below if you’d like to be notified when that class has been finalized. 

No experience required. 

Instructor: Sharon Mansfield
Class Fee: $125 + $35 kit

    Is it possible o bring white tank tops or skirts to dye this way?

    • The Tin Thimble says:

      Hello Nancy! For this workshop, no. Students will each be given a kit that includes the materials you will use in this class. However, we are planning on scheduling an indigo dip day in which students could bring projects to dye so stay tuned for that workshop! Feel free to give us a call at 916-652-2134 if you have any other questions or would like to be put on a list to notify when the indigo dip day has been scheduled. Thanks for the inquiry.

  2. Yes, I’d like to know next class in series ASAP! Thanks!
