The Japanese technique of Shibori resist-dyeing has the potential to create infinite patterns on fabric. When combined with the unique properties of indigo dye, results are both contemporary and ageless. You will learn how to mix the indigo vat, and experiment with various binding, folding, stitching and clamping techniques on cotton, silk, and linen. You’ll leave with the knowledge to continue Shibori and indigo projects at home. Jump into the blue!
