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 scarf.  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 $100 per person, which includes one 30” x 30” 100% silk scarf, all dye equipment, step-by-step instructions, light refreshments and snacks. Feel free to bring one (1) additional item to dye.  Item should not be larger than 3’ x 3’.  Bulky pieces like towels, linens, bedding, etc., are not permitted.  Natural materials like cotton, linen, rayon, and ramie accept the color the best. We suggest wearing clothes you don’t mind getting stained.  Gloves will be provided.  Unfortunately, due to materials costs, cancellations after April 30th, cannot be refunded. Space is limited.
