Shibori- Ancient Cloth Wrapping and Dye Techniques

Friday:   5pm to 8pm

Shibori is the Japanese term for the dye-resistant process of binding, clamping or gathering cloth so the dye cannot reach certain parts. The result is a powerful combination of structured design with the organic freedom of the unpredictable. Learn this interesting historical Japanese textile art. You will make a unique silk scarf which will be created with your own personal expression of color and design. All materials and handouts will be supplied in class for a $20 materials fee. No experience needed.
