Indigo dye is breathtaking – experience the magic as the fabric changes from lime green to indigo blue before your eyes. Shibori is the ancient Japanese form of dyeing that revolves around different ways of binding and folding fabric to create different patterns (also known as tie dye), and is most commonly practiced with indigo. In this five week course we will make a variety of shibori samples exploring the different variety of patterns. The fabric samples are large enough to be used as Furoshiki (Japanese wrapping cloth) which are both beautiful and functional. They can be used for a lunch bag alternative, a eco-wrapping technique, or scarf or garment. Often fabrics created are incorporated into quilting and sewing projects.
