The Art of Japanese Shibori Dyeing


with Kristen Bartlett

Calendar Apr 27, 2019 at 10 am, runs for 1 week

Japanese resistance-dyeing dates back to the 8th century. Bind, fold and twist your cloth to create beautifully dyed patterns. Explore techniques with a selection of objects for manipulating the fabric. We will be using a pre-reduced natural dye extracted from the indigo plant. Bring to class: a bagged lunch! Bring one pre-washed, non-bulky fabric item (can be clothing) no larger than 4 x 4 feet, made of 100% natural fiber: cotton, cashmere, or silk and one pair of long heavy-duty plastic gloves (to protect hands). You will be dyeing outside so dress appropriately (wear dark clothing or something you would not mind getting blue dye on).

Kristen Bartlett was exposed to art at a very early age, inspiring her lifelong creative path. With schooling in drawing, oil painting, graphic design and photography, Kristen practices many forms of art. Her current loves are in chunky blanket knitting, mixed media collage and Japanese shibori dyeing.
