  • Itajime Shibori Dye Techniques

    Reviewed by Charbel M. on 1/10/2022
    The Itajime Shibori workshop at Better than Jam was fantastic. Thoroughly throughout with lessons on how the technique was created from traditional to modern-day interpretation. Learning the process while making your dye pieces is thought-provoking and leaves you with a calmness that you will long for after you go. I've shown my work to friends and family, and they all rave for a piece. It now seems that I'll have to retake this workshop to have a couple of items for myself. I would recommend this class to everyone and anyone. 10/10. Thank you for such a great lesson on the Itajime Shibori technique.

    Wonderful class. Nicely sized (we had 6 students in total). Paced well for beginners - there was sufficient time for pre-learning, and then trying out different techniques on 3 pieces (the studio provided tea white cotton towels / bandanas / totes). A lovely way to spend a Sun morning.
