Shibori is the simple yet sophisticated Japanese ancestor of tie-dyeing, newly popular with many modern adaptations. We will use straight-forward, immediate hands-on methods of clamping, tying, stitching, and wrapping resists on silk fabrics, then immerse them in vibrant fiber-reactive and acid dye baths to layer rich colors and gorgeous patterns. We will also mix a simple pre-reduced indigo bath as well as get into discharge, or color removal, from base layer colors on cotton fabrics. Students may bring blank fabric, scarves, t-shirts, and apparel pieces to dye and finish in this fun and fast-paced workshop.
