Join our workshop about the Japanese dyeing technique of Shibori. The technique is a way of making patterns on fabric through exposing only some portions of the fabric to dye. Much of the work of Shibori is in the preparation: the fabric is folded, tied, sewn, or pleated, to dictate the pattern of the dye. Indigo vats will be set up for dyeing, and guests will be able to bring their own items to dye. Included in the cost of the workshop is a set of four cotton napkins for dyeing per person.

Register early, as slots are sure to fill up quickly! Tickets are $25 for Members and $40 for guests.

This workshop is recommended for ages 14 and older.
