In this shibori dyeing class, open to beginners or returning Beginner Shibori students, we will focus on Itajime techniques. These focus on using folding and blocks to create tradition Japanese fabric patterns. Learn the difference between triangle, grid and the lovely ways to fold to create pieces that resemble mandalas.
We start by creating a pre-reduced indigo vat. Sankaku, gōshi, kikkō, and asanoha will all be show, as well as some fun tricks to create more complicated looks without a headache. All materials provided, but you are welcome to bring materials. Make sure that all fibers are natural, ie. cotton linen silk wool. Each student will be able to create 3-4 pieces
