What you'll learn in this dye class:

In this shibori dyeing class, open to beginners or returning Beginner Shibori students,  we will focus on Itajime techniques. These focus on using folding and blocks to create tradition Japanese fabric patterns.  Learn the difference between triangle, grid and the lovely ways to fold to create pieces that resemble mandalas.

We start by creating a pre-reduced indigo vat. Sankaku, gōshi, kikkō, and asanoha  will all be show, as well as some fun tricks to create more complicated looks without a headache.  All materials provided, but you are welcome to bring materials. Make sure that all fibers are natural, ie. cotton linen silk wool. Each student will be able to create 3-4 pieces

COVID Precautions:

All attendees must be vaccinated for two weeks, provide a negative test no less than 72 hours old, or take a rapid test the same day. Which conveniently you can grab at most Walgreens, CVS, Etc for only $25.

Each student will receive a form they will sign and let me know which they prefer. ONLY IF ALL students are vaccinated and say they are comfortable not wearing a mask will they not be required. Otherwise expect wearing a mask as the studio is indoors with little airflow, though it is a big space and allows for social distancing.
