Saturday, April 22, 2023 // 12pm – 2pm
In this small group workshop we will explore shibori dye techniques to upcycle your white garments!
Do you have a white garment you'd love to bring new life to? White clothing gets stained, and dingy – instead of letting it sit in your closet or donating it, let's give it new life!
Shibori is a Japanese manual resist dyeing technique used on textiles to creates patterns that spread unevenly across the fabric. The resulting patterns are often emblematic of Japan’s appreciation of the beauty of imperfection – known locally as wabi sabi – and are prized for their individuality and arresting beauty.
This workshop is a great opportunity to enjoy handmade processes and have fun learning how to bring new life to your closet and favorite garments.
