Event Overview

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 Itajime method of resist, a technique that utilizes shaped blocks to create bold, geometric designs. Please be sure your pieces are natural, plant-based fibers like linen, cotton, or hemp. Items like napkins and tote bags are a great size for this class. We’ll be using indigo dye to dip into, a vibrant, striking blue you’re sure to love.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this class. The instructor was great. She did a wonderful job of explaining, demonstrating, and guiding. I love my napkins and tea towel that I dyed. They turned out awesome!
