Shibori Dyeing: Arashi Resist
Arts & DIY
Pillowcases cases looking tired? Strange spot on your favorite tee? Shibori is the answer! Shibori, aka Japanese tie dye, is a multifaceted art where you can tie, fold, and stitch your way to a whole new look for tired linens, clothes and more. Bring one or two items to transform using the Arashi method of resist, a technique that involves binding onto poles to create striking striped repeats. Please be sure your pieces are natural, plant based fibers like linen, cotton, or hemp. We’ll be using indigo dye to dip into, a vibrant, striking blue you’re sure to love.
Materials saved from the landfill: Pillow cases, clothing, etc.
Skills you’ll learn:
Please bring in 2-3 items to dye. Items should be made of natural fibers such as cotton, linen, wool, silk, hemp. Scarves, tote bags, pillow cases are just a few ideas!
All ages welcome
Dye stuff and equipment will be provided.
