Learn how to dye with indigo in the Shibori manner. Shibori is a Japanese style of resist dyeing that involves twisting, tying, binding, folding, stitching and other manipulation of fabric. We will demonstrate a number of classic techniques and guide you to create your own unique designs. Materials are provided, but you may also bring two additional small items to dye or you may purchase additional towels or napkins for $5 each from the instructor.
