Join us for a creative afternoon of learning, sharing and collaborating in our new home, the Hawthorne Arts Complex. This intro to Shibori dyeing workshop is designed to make learning how to dye your own fabric fun & easy! I will lead you through many different shaped resist techniques such as shibori and itajime and together we will get busy with our hands in the indigo vats. You will go home with 2 authentic personalized pieces. This workshop is for everyone, and no experience is necessary. Feel free to bring one additional item (100% natural fiber, like a T-shirt or pillowcase) to dye. Shibori is perfect for those who tend to get “creatively” paralyzed. Shibori - a Japanese technique of binding, stitching, and clamping fabric to create patterns when indigo dye is applied - is a process that embraces the art of the unexpected. It is the play between structure and chaos, between planning and letting go where every outcome is a surprise. PART SOCIAL CLUB AND PART ART CLASS, CRAVE WORKSHOPS BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER TO LEARN UNIQUE CRAFTS AND HANG OUT!
I am an artist who has traveled around the world to learn global crafts. My passion is to bring these crafts to my local community, and create a relaxed space for people to connect. I want to share my love of art, travel and friendship. I teach the art of Mindful Making, using art to slow down, one craft at a time. Getting away from our tech devices and practicing being in the moment. Mindful Making helps us connect with people of all backgrounds.It is empowering and humbling to pause our busy schedules, spend time together and make something new.
Indigo Dye We provide all the materials and project kits, including two items to dye.
