Indigo Shibori Sampler

Thursday, 19 September 2024
9 am to 5 pm
$55 members
Live, in-person at the Millwood Firehouse on 100 Millwood Road in Millwood, NY 10546

This workshop will focus on creating patterned fabric using traditional Shibori methods, twisting, binding, and clamping fabric and then placing it in an indigo dye bath. In case you want to try simple stitched resists, directions will be emailed upon registration. You will do the stitch work at home and bring the fabric to class where you will gather, knot, and dye the fabric. Due to the nature of the workshop, class size is limited to 14 people.


Embroidery-sized scissors with pointed blades (not your best) or thread snips
Seam ripper (optional)
Rubber Gloves (a la Playtex)
Surgical weight rubber gloves (optional)
An old towel if you have one.
Wear old clothes
Optional: A lidded container (milk jug, quart jars, etc) to possibly take some indigo home.
Bring any shibori or tie dye samples you may have, and a sample of your work if you wish.
Note:  Materials fee is $20 and includes fabric.
