The Art of Shibori: Technique Intensive Combining ...

Presented by Textiles West at Cottonwood Center for the Arts

In this four-week long workshop you will learn Japanese resist techniques including pole wrapping, stitching, clamping, and binding with marbles, beans, and other objects.

Our fabrics will be various natural fibers such as cotton, silk, linen, and hemp.

We will work with fiber reactive dyes and indigo focusing on color placement, with shibori techniques to create designs that are intentional and creative.

The weeks will be divided into learning how to prepare the fabric to get a specific result.

The student will leave with a variety of fabrics that can then be used in future projects.

This is an advanced workshop: prior knowledge of working with fiber reactive dyes and indigo required.
