CRFT:718 Shibori Dyed Silk Scarves10/02-10/16  

* * * CLASS WITHDRAWN * * * What could be better than making a scarf just the way you want? How about making EIGHT scarves just the way you want! In this class, you will learn Shibori techniques to add pattern and color to your scarves. Shibori dyeing is an ancient technique that 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 support 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 covered in the class is dye removal; you will add color, remove color, and add more color. Leave with eight finished scarves at the end of class. These beautiful scarves make great gifts! Supplies included in the cost of the class. Bring ziplock bags, rubber gloves, and an old towel to class. Dress to work with dye. Class will take place at Diversified Health and Wellness Cneter located at 11040 Manchester Road, Kirkwood, MO 63122. Cost for adults 60 and over $112.50.
