Indigo Dyeing and Shibori Basics
Lifelong Learning

Join a local artist to make your own shibori-dyed textiles and learn about the fascinating history behind indigo, one of the oldest dyes in the world. Shibori (meaning "to wring, squeeze or press") is an ancient Japanese indigo dyeing technique that produces unique and interesting patterns. Your first classroom session will discuss the history, botany, and chemistry of indigo, as well as shibori techniques for wrapping and tying fabric. Then, join your instructor outside to make your own indigo-dyed creations. In two sessions, you'll gain the context to appreciate the historic value of this craft as well as the skills to continue practicing.
