|Ancient art form meets modern aesthetic in this Shibori hand dyeing workshop focused on blending traditional and modern techniques to synthesize a truly unique textile art.|
Work with master fiber artist Lian Sawires in adapting 5 shibori resist methods to create texture and patterns, while exploring 2 unique types of dyeing. Fiber Reactive and acid dyes interact differently with fabric, allowing you to achieve interesting and complex results. Overdyeing, discharging and dye blending take you to the next level resulting in a virtually unlimited surface design palette. Beginners and advanced textile artists will both find a wealth of inspiration and creative possibility in this full day shibori intensive. Bring a lunch and your own fabrics to add to the three silk scarves we will provide. What you create will amaze you! $35.00 material fee payable directly to the instructor.
