Dip into Shibori & Indigo Dyeing at Blue Bar Quilts
August 31, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm$85
No fabric dyeing experience is required. Learn the fundamentals of Japanese Shibori techniques and indigo dyeing.
Shibori means to fold, clamp, stitch or in some way block off fabric to create patterns when the fabric is dyed.
We’ll be experimenting with a variety of shibori techniques to make beautiful patterns.
Then, you’ll dye your patterned fabric in an indigo dye vat. Feel free to bring along a tee shirt (natural fibers only) to dip into the vat.
Dress in clothes and shoes that can get stained blue.
