Itajime Shibori Indigo Dyeing with Kelsey Viola Wiskirchen

December 11th 6-8:30 PM

members: $45.00 non-members: $60.00

Throughout history, indigo has been one of the most widely used plant dyes for creating blue cloth. In this workshop, you will learn Itajime Shibori, and dip your fabric into the indigo dye to create rich, deep shades of blue. Itajime Shibori involves systematically folding the fabric and clamping it with tiles to create geometric repeat patterns. We will dye both cotton and silk fabric, and students will go home with two beautiful finished hand-dyed scarves.

Supply fee included.
