Stitched Shibori • August 7
Adult, Adult Classes, Featured Class
Saturday, August 7, 10 am – 3 pm
Everything from subtle abstract patterns to pictorial pieces is possible with just a handful of artfully placed threads. Using the basic running stitch to act as a resist for dyes, create surface patterns on fabric with just a needle, thread, and dye. This is shibori that can be stitched “on the go” at a meeting, riding in a car, visiting with family, or getting cozy on the couch. Review three different stitched shibori techniques, discuss basic immersion and vat dyeing practices, and then learn an adapted method in the classroom since our dye kitchen is not being used during COVID-19! A simple batching method using premixed dyes will add color to your textiles, bringing life to your stitched patterns. Materials fee $20, payable to instructor.
