Shibori Techniques for Textile dyeing — This class will cover major shibori resist techniques like Kanoko (similar to western tie-dye), Kumo (pleated and thread-bound resists), Nui (stitched resists), Arashi (pole-wrapped resists), Itajime (folded fabric using clamped resists), and Bomaki (pleated and wrapped to include texture as well as color). We’ll also discuss how to use found and upcycled objects and how to combine techniques and layers of dye for unique effects. Materials fee of $10 will include one cotton and one silk piece per student. Students may bring up to 2 additional items for dyeing. Items should be primarily (70% or more) natural fiber, including cotton, linen, bamboo, silk and thin wool. Wovens fabrics work better than knits for clean lines, but tee shirts are fine. PLEASE DO NOT bring denim, canvas, cotton or wool fleece, or other heavy fabric items like sweaters or hoodies; these items require a significant amount of extra dye.
