This is not your typical tie-dye job. Shibori is a Japanese dyeing technique that dates back to the 8th century. Traditionally, a white cloth was folded, bunched, or twisted, then tied, and finally dipped into a natural indigo dye. After letting the fabric soak in the dye, undo the binding the dyed cloth reappears with kaleidoscopic explosions of organic color, crinkled texture, and multidimensional designs. Join us and learn additional techniques to achieve even more of an element of unexpected magic.
