This workshop will introduce the participants to shibori, the ancient Japanese fabric dyeing technique that utilizes a variety of methods – wrapping, tying, stitching, folding, twisting – to create richly textured patters of color on fabric. students will focus on pole-wrapped or arashi shibori, stitch resits, and clamped shibori and will complete a series of finishes pieces and samples suitable for multiple uses.
