Over this 2-day workshop, participants will explore the Japanese resist dyeing technique known as, Arimatsu Shibori. Stitching, pleating, binding and pole wrapping are some of the techniques covered while participants create their own set of samples using a variety of cellulose fibres like, cotton, rayon and linen. Together we will set up an easy, pre-reduced indigo kit while we explore its rich history and lore. In addition to the samples, each participant will work on a larger piece such as a scarf or wall hanging. No previous experience necessary! Please bring an apron and nitrile gloves, all other supplies are included.
