The Japanese term Shibori comes from the verb root shiboru, which means “wring, squeeze, press”. In this workshop, Visual Designer, Sylvr Sharp, will teach you the fundamentals of this historic pattern making process and how to make your own naturally dyed indigo and shibori tote and tea towel. There are three types of patterns we will be offering: Kumo (pleated and bound resist), Arashi (pole-wrapping) and Itajime (shape-resist). Workshop fee is $125 per person, which includes an 8” x 15” canvas tote, a 27” square flour bag tea towel, all dye equipment, step-by-step instructions, light refreshments and snacks. We suggest wearing clothes you don’t mind getting stained. Gloves will be provided. Unfortunately, due to materials costs, cancellations after June 15th, cannot be refunded. Space is limited.
