Shibori Indigo Wall Tapestry - May 10th

Hosted by Light Gallery + Studio

Join us to learn the technique of Shibori Indigo Dyeing and create your own unique hanging wall tapestry to bring home! We will learn the basics of the Japanese art of folding and binding fabric, mix a vat of indigo dye together, and experience the magic of this ancient dyeing technique! Three pieces of cotton test fabric will be supplied to experiment with, great to frame and add some artwork to your home or use for another craft project!

Shibori is the ancient Japanese technique of folding, twisting, bunching, and binding fabric before dyeing it in a vat of 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! All supplies including dowel and string for the wall hanging are provided!
