Shibori results in “slow cloth” (cloth that develops and evolves over time) using hand stitching, precise dyeing, and a symbiotic relationship with textiles and fiber that honors our creative journey. Students will learn several shibori Shibori Scarvestechniques taking us far beyond tie-dye, including arashi (pole wrapping), mokume (stitching and scrunching), itajimi (folded and bound), and kumo (wrapping around stones). Working with both silk and cotton, we will dye scarves and shirts and marvel at the results. Beginners welcome. Materials fee: $25 collected by the instructor at the workshop.
