  • Learn basics of shibori resist dyeing, with a concentration on folded, tied and clamped resist.
  • Learn the terminology of shibori and indigo dyeing.
  • Learn to dye natural fiber goods in a plant derived indigo vat.
  • 2 scarf-sized pieces of linen and small cotton tote will be provided.
  • Feel free to bring your own goods to dye, but please avoid bulky pieces (towels, jackets, bedding etc.). Cellulose fibers (cotton, linen, rayon, ramie) accept the color the best. Pre-wash in hot water before the workshop.
  • If time and materials allow, more experimental dyeing (paper, yarn, hair) can be done at the end of the workshop.
  • Wear old clothing that can be stained. The dye will splash.
