Shibori is the art of tying, wrapping and clamping fabric to make resist patterns. In this two-session class, you will learn a variety of Shibori processes and surface treatments to create beautiful wearable or home decor pieces.
You will learn basic techniques such as folding and clamping, pole winding and wrapping, or tying and capping. Once the resist is applied, your choices for adding colors with rich Procion dyes is limited only by your imagination! Then, you can add depth to your piece through stamping and stenciling, discharging or simply refolding and overdyeing. This is where the beauty of Shibori comes alive! You will receive two pre-treated scarves or silk fabric panels to work with plus test panels for experimentation. No experience necessary.
After you have taken a class or a private lesson at Full Circle, you are eligible to attend studio times on Monday and Thursday mornings here at my studio. I supply the equipment, dyes, paints, chemicals and plenty of support; you bring a natural fiber piece you would like to work on or I can order items for you from Dharma Trading at cost, plus shipping.

When you say Tie-dye, most people think of American Hippie-style t-shirts. The inspiration for modern tie-dye, Shibori, is the ancient art of folding, tying, wrapping and clamping fabric to make resist patterns. In both of these techniques, once a resist method is applied, your choices for adding colors is limited only by your imagination! In this class, you will learn a variety of ways to make beautiful colors, patterns and images on fabric, and create multi-layered pieces that can be mounted as a wall hangings or used to make functional or wearable art. No artistic experience necessary!
Materials and an informative handout will be provided. Come explore the colorful world of tie-dye and shibori!
