Let’s study the fascinating world of Japanese Shibori and Indigo. First, we will explore Indigo’s history and then, move into workshop mode to create a collection of samples. Using a variety of Shibori techniques, we’ll create a series of textile samples, each employing a different tie-dye method. You may also dye yarn (natural fiber), t-shirts, or small amounts of yardage. Choose to use an Indigo dye kit or Dylon cold-water dyes (both available from Amazon.com as well as various fabric/art and craft suppliers). If you like, you can purchase a set of table napkins or dish towels and use these for your samples.
