Twisted Shibori

About Twisted Shibori

This class is designed to use the basic idea of compressing the fabric in a way that allows participants to learn the basics of using Procion dyes and discharge techniques on silk scarves. Hand dyed silk scarves are a wonderful take away from a workshop and the techniques covered can work on any natural fiber such as cotton or linen. Step-by-step directions and handouts let students continue to explore on their own after the workshop is over. Open to all levels of experiences.

This class is limited to 50 students.
