Learn to dye fabric using the ancient Japanese process of shibori, otherwise known as tie-dye. You’ll use fiber reactive dyes to add color to cotton fabric. Create a silk scarf and your choice of a t-shirt or kitchen apron.
- All materials are provided; participants will get a portion of cotton fabric, a silk scarf, and either a t-shirt or kitchen apron and to dye. Bring a pair of rubber dishwashing style rubber gloves and wear "studio" clothes; the dyes used in this class will stain clothing. A lunch break will be provided. Students are encouraged to bring a bag lunch.
- Classes are confirmed one week prior to the start date. In order to help us confirm classes, please register as early as possible.
