CRFT:718 Shibori Dyed Silk Scarves11/04-11/18  

Do you love scarves? What could be better than making 8 just the way you want? Learn Shibori techniques to add pattern and color to your scarves. Shibori dyeing is an ancient technique that literally means "shaped-resist dyeing". The shaping process leaves areas undyed that become patterns when the cloth is dyed. Rather than treating cloth as a two-dimensional flat surface, shibori techniques give it a three dimensional form by folding, crumpling, stitching, plaiting, or plucking and twisting. A cloth may be dyed repeatedly using a different shaping method each time. Also learned in the class is dye removal, you will add color, remove color, and add more color. Leave with 8 finished scarves at the end of class. Learn many stitched and folded Shibori techniques as well as vat dyeing and dye removal. Supplies included in the cost of the class. Bring ziplock bags, rubber gloves and an old towel to class. Dress to work with dye. Cost for adults 60 and over $97.00.
