The Art of Shibori Dyeing
with Kristen Bartlett
Japanese resistance-dyeing dates back to the 8th century. Bind, fold and twist your cloth to create beautifully dyed patterns. Explore techniques with a selection of objects for manipulating the fabric. We will be using a natural dye extracted from the indigo plant. Tuition includes two flour sack towels and dyeing materials.
Required: One non-bulky fabric item (can be clothing) no larger than 4 x 4 feet, made of 100% natural fiber: cotton, cashmere, or silk and one pair of heavy-duty plastic gloves (to protect hands). You will be dyeing outside so dress appropriately (dark clothing or something you would not mind getting dye on).
Kristen Bartlett was exposed to art at a very early age, inspiring her lifelong creative path. With schooling in drawing, oil painting, graphic design and photography, her current loves are in mixed media collage and Japanese Shibori dyeing.
