Description

Shibori is the Japanese art of creating pattern on fabric through binding, stitching, folding, and twisting during the dyeing process. Intricate patterns, texture, and color blending takes place as color is layered through multiple dye applications. Color is further enhanced through the use of discharge (color removal) and over dye.
Create lovely designs on silk in this two-day workshop. You will learn contemporary variations of traditional techniques of Shibori. The schedule offers the opportunity to learn the basics and expand on those with deeper, more complex color blending and patterning through multiple dye applications, discharge, and over-dye. Students will create three 1 1/2-yard pieces of silk fabric, and have the option of switching to scarves.
