Double Dip Shibori
About Double Dip Shibori
Shibori is the simple, sophisticated Japanese ancestor of tie-dyeing, newly popular with modern adaptations. Use straight-forward, hands-on methods of clamping, tying, stitching, and wrapping resists on silk fabrics, then immerse them in vibrant fiber-reactive and acid dye baths to layer rich colors and gorgeous patterns. Mix a simple, pre-reduced indigo bath and explore color removal from base-dyed cottons. Bring blank items or raid your closet for pieces to revive by dyeing!
This class is presented in collaboration with the John C. Campbell Folk School & is limited to 8 students. There will be an optional Orientation and Closing Ceremony hosted from the Folk School campus that students can attend online.
