Dying to learn Shibori?

Check out our upcoming Shibori Dye Workshops at The House of Woo, taught by Huong Nguyen!

Shibori is a Japanese dyeing technique that typically involves folding, twisting or bunching cloth and binding it, then dyeing it in indigo. Whatever is used to bind the fabric will resist the dye, resulting in areas of the cloth that take the distinctive blue dye in patterns created by the resistance, and other areas of the cloth that remain white. Simple and economic to execute, Shibori does not require any skill or knowledge of the craft to create a myriad of designs and patterns.  Even with knowledge of all methods and techniques there is still mystery and an air of uncertainty of how the pattern will turn out until the piece is opened up to reveal the final surprise!

Witness the process and DIY at our Arts District studio.
