Shibori: Arashi • August 2; Proof of Vaccination Required Upon Registration. Thank You!
Adult, Adult Classes, Featured Class
Tuesday, August 2, 6 – 9 pm
Arashi shibori is a Japanese resist dyeing technique, which produces “storm-like” patterns on fabric. Learn to wrap your fabric around a pole, scrunching it into small pleats, and bind it with rope. Basic immersion dyeing techniques will be discussed, and students will learn an adapted direct application method to use in the classroom since our dye kitchen is not being used during COVID-19! A simple batching method using premixed dyes will add either vibrant or subtle color to your textiles–you choose–bringing life to your folded and wrapped patterns. By the end of class, students will be able to define shibori and its history, apply basic arashi techniques to dye projects, apply dyeing techniques, and recognize the different color results between silk & cotton. Students will need to bring a white silk or 100% natural fiber scarf to the class–washed and ready to dye. You can order one through our shop HERE to have it at your desk for class. Please see the materials list for more information. Materials fee $15 (for dyes, etc.), payable to the instructor at the time of class.
This is an in-person class, which requires proof of COVID-19 vaccination. Click here to submit your proof of vaccination. Proof of vaccination must be received 3 days (72 hours) before class, or your registration is subject to cancellation with a full refund of your payment.
