Shibori Indigo Dye Workshop
Join us to learn the technique of Shibori Indigo Dyeing and create your own unique piece to bring home! Choose from a full length scarf, a set of two throw pillow covers, or a set of 4 dinner napkins, all perfect holiday gifts. Multiple tickets to this event may be purchased and given as gifts as well. We will learn the basics of the Japanese art of folding and binding fabric, mix a vat of indigo dye together, and experience the magic of this ancient dyeing technique! Light refreshments will be served, and each guest is welcome to bring one small piece of their own to dye at the end, which must be 100% natural fiber. What is Shibori? Shibori is the ancient Japanese technique of folding, twisting, bunching, and binding fabric before dyeing it in a vat of indigo. What is Indigo? Indigo is a dye made from the pigments of plants found in the Indigofera family. It has been used for thousands of years and across many cultures to achieve a range of beautiful blue hues. Indigo dye is an all natural and organic compound that is safe for even the most delicate skin. It is also 100% machine washable!
