From creating an indigo vat to making different patterns through clamp and pole resist techniques, you'll become obsessed with shibori. You will spend the afternoon experimenting with different surface design effects and dyeing your pieces in the indigo vats. It's going to be awesome and you'll leave with fabric that you can create something with. Please note that this is messy work so dress accordingly!
Limited to 6 students (16 yrs of age or older); 50% enrollment required for class to meet. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.
