Traditional Japanese Shibori Dying and Sashiko Stitching Workshop

w/Jodie Cord $100

On Saturday 4/6, You will learn about traditional Japanese methods of Shibori dying and then we will put that learning into practice! You will learn how to prepare the indigo dye bath, bind, fold, stitch or otherwise block the fabric to create a pattern, then prepare and dye your pieces. Each person will have the chance to try several methods.

On Sunday 4/7 You will use the Shibori fabric pieces you made to practice the traditional Japanese art of Sashiko stitching. You can bring something to repair or embellish such as jeans or a canvas fabric item, or you can create a work of art to be hung, framed or used for a future project. You can do a basic running stitch pattern or you can use a pattern of your choosing.
