About the event
Join us to experience the technique of Shibori Indigo Dyeing and create your own unique piece to bring home! Learn the art of folding and binding fabric, mix a vat of indigo dye together, and experience the magic of this ancient textile technique! Each student will design and create a set of two throw pillow covers and is welcome to bring a small piece of their own to dye, which must be 100% natural fiber like cotton, linen, silk, wool, bamboo, etc. Light refreshments will be provided, and the adjacent Pabu restaurant will open for service as our workshop concludes at 5pm.
What is Shibori?
Shibori is the ancient Japanese technique of folding, twisting, bunching, and binding fabric before dyeing it in a vat of indigo.
What is Indigo?
Indigo is a dye made from the pigments of plants found in the Indigofera family. It has been used for thousands of years and across many cultures to achieve a range of beautiful blue hues. Indigo dye is an all natural and organic compound that is safe for even the most delicate skin. It is also 100% machine washable!
