The Art of Japanese Shibori Dyeing

$47

with Kristen Bartlett

Calendar Sep 7, 2019 at 10 am, runs for 1 week

Japanese resistance-dyeing is the oldest form of fabric dyeing and dates back to the 8th century! Bind, fold and twist your cloth to create beautifully dyed patterns. Explore techniques with a wide selection of objects for manipulating the fabric. A pre-reduced indigo dye will be used. Leave with three dyed (by you) creations!

Bring to class: One pre-washed, non-bulky fabric item (can be clothing) no larger than 4 x 4 feet, made of 100% natural fiber: cotton works very well and bring one pair of heavy-duty, long plastic or rubber gloves. You will be dyeing outside so dress appropriately for weather and wear dark clothing or something you would not mind getting indigo dye on and bring a bagged lunch.

Kristen 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 and crafts. Her current loves are in mixed media collage, Japanese shibori dyeing, chunky knitting, and homemade bath bombs & shower steamers!
