GREENPOINT WORKSHOP: Indigo Tea Towels- 4 Shibori Techniques
Learn the fascinating art of shibori dyeing! In this workshop, we'll explore four unique shibori dyeing techniques. You'll leave with a set of awesome indigo tea towels and the knowledge to take on future dyeing projects of your own.
What is shibori? It's a Japanese dyeing technique that typically involves folding, twisting or bunching cloth and binding it, then dyeing it in indigo. Whatever is used to bind the fabric will resist the dye, resulting in areas of the cloth that take the distinctive blue dye in patterns created by the resistance, and other areas of the cloth that remain white. Shibori is a very vast technique and there are tons of ways to do it (and a truly infinite number of patterns you can create), and in this class you'll get an in-depth look at several of them.
Shibori dyeing is truly an amazing craft, as every piece you dye is a little bit of a mystery. We promise you'll love the process of folding fabric, dyeing it, then unfolding it to reveal the organic results. Join us for an amazing afternoon of shibori magic!
