Get your shibori on and create a one of a kind matching dinner napkin set!

Indigo pigmented shibori fabric seems like a quick trend but this textile design style has been around for centuries. Japanese shibori fabric is a technique in which dye is controlled by various methods of resist that create stunning designs. It's a little like tie dye in its more basic form, but is much more controlled and deliberate in terms of creating a desired repeating pattern or effect.

In this workshop, we'll demonstrate several folding, twisting, tying & clamping methods; discuss the general process of preparing the fabric to accept the dye, the mixing and dye application process, as well as tips for successful rinsing + washing.

— Two hours of instruction and experimentation with demonstrated folding techniques
— Set of 4 natural cotton dinner napkins (with an option to purchase additional matching napkins during check-out to create a larger matching set)
— Assorted fabric scraps for practice dying — you are welcome to bring additional small pieces of fabric from home to use as time allows.
— Use of our shibori binding supplies: strings, bands, blocks, resists, and protective gloves.
— Presoak soda ash + fabric dye bath
