Shibori – meaning to wring or squeeze – is the name for a range of dyeing techniques that have been practiced for hundreds of year in Japan, with the earliest recorded use of Shibori dating back to the 8th century. Using plain white cloth and most commonly indigo dye, a huge range of resist patterns can be created with Shibori's array of tie-dying and stitching techniques.
In this class we will be explore a few of the basic Shibori-inspired tying techniques and use beginner-friendly synthetic indigo dye to create beautiful patterns on one 28 x 28 flour sack dish towel and one 18 x 18 square throw pillow cover each. You'll go home with one-of-a-kind creations to adorn your home.
