We’re sorry, this class has been cancelled.
Not your uncle’s tie dye!
Shibori is a traditional Japanese fiber art. This “shape-resist” dyeing technique was primarily done with indigo on silk, but the resist techniques used to make these beautiful 3-dimensional patterns can be applied to virtually any fabric using a host of natural dye materials.
Learn the basics of traditional dyeing techniques.
In this class you will learn ancient resist methods that are still used to create uniquely beautiful patterns. You will also learn how dyes are extracted from natural indigo and a variety of native Georgia plants.
Practice what you’ve learned.
We will mix up a batch of natural dye and each participant will give it a go, starting with sample fabric squares. No two will look the same! These simple practice piece immediately become works of art.
Dye your own scarf or T-shirt.
Bring a scarf, T-shirt, or similarly sized item from home to show off your new skills. Make your own one-of-a-kind creation!
