Natural Dyes 102 : Layering Colors and Shift Clamp Itajime
At Marshfield School of Weaving : 334 Jake Martin Road Marshfield, Vermont 05658
Wednesday August 7 through Friday August 9, 2019
In recent years the word Shibori has become associated strongly with indigo dyed textiles, but this traditional pattern making method can be used with nearly every natural dye color! In this course, students will explore itajime (bound resist) style pattern making. The dyes can be layered on top of each other to create a beautiful array of pattern and color. No experience is necessary but a working understanding of mordant based dyeing is helpful.
