Combine woven shibori, a loom controlled patterning system using temporary gathering threads, with silk noil and Lanaset dyes to create samples or a scarf. Bring your 4-8 harness loom dressed with a dummy warp 180 ends sett at 12epi (instructions and threading drafts will be provided) ready to tie on silk.  In addition to the aforementioned loom, participants will need to bring 2 shuttles, bobbins, warp separator (paper or sticks), scissors, seam ripper and other tools for weaving. A pickup stick longer than 15" is optional. Manual bobbin winders will be available. Learn the process. Handouts will support taking your new skills to your home studio.

Skill Level: Intermediate

Materials fee: $35 for silk noil warps (one per participant), silk weft, embroidery floss, dyes (including vinegar and sodium alginate), handouts, woven shibori samples, miscellaneous tools (plastic containers, brushes, cross holders, etc.)

Registration: Members $300, Non-members $360
