Shibori Textile Dyeing Workshop

This course has no current classes. Please join the waiting list.

What is Shibori?

Shibori consists of various textile tying, stitching, and compressing techniques to form different impressions on fabric.  Within each technique, there are diverse variations making different markings to achieve the desired outcome.  It is the variations that open the endless possibilities that come from shibori.

Learn the art of Japanese Shibori textile dyeing in this one-day workshop with Karen Davis of Shibori. In this beginner workshop, you will learn the magic indigo dye, including how to create unique textiles using traditional fabric folding and clamping techniques.

At the end of this course, you will produce a range of textile samples and a silk scarf using your favourite shibori techniques. These dyeing techniques can then be transferred to create unique homewares, gifts, and upcycle garments.

All materials included.
