A Day in the Life
It's official, I am planning and preparing for my Shibori Workshop on Sunday, July 9th, 2017. There will be 8 spots available to create unique fabrics and explore Shibori, the ancient art of folding and tying using indigo dyes. Each workshop attendee will take home 2 tea towels along with any additional hand-dyed item of their liking, such as: tote bags, apparel, and pillowcases etc.
All tie and dye supplies are included in the workshop cost along with the tea towels. Workshop attendees can bring in additional items to fold and dye so that they may experiment and explore. A workshop guide and recommendations will be sent to everyone who enrolls.
This workshop has already taken place, but we have new workshops coming up this Fall!
I'm excited to share with you my tips and my recommendations for a successful project. Read on to see the basic steps to Shibori and see my list of favorite supplies.
#1. Always choose cotton, silk or natural fibers for best results when dyeing.
# 2. I enjoyed having 2 dye-baths so that I could work on more than 1 textile at a time.
#3. For a faded look dip 1-2 times and use a non-cotton item. My curtain panel was not cotton and it instantly appeared lighter than the rest.
