What you'll learn in this dye class:

In this shibori dyeing class, open to beginners or returning Beginner Shibori students,  we will focus on Itajime techniques. These focus on using folding and blocks to create tradition Japanese fabric patterns.  Learn the difference between triangle, grid and the lovely ways to fold to create pieces that resemble mandalas.

We start by creating a pre-reduced indigo vat. Sankaku, gōshi, kikkō, and asanoha  will all be show, as well as some fun tricks to create more complicated looks without a headache.  All materials provided, but you are welcome to bring materials. Make sure that all fibers are natural, ie. cotton linen silk wool. Each student will be able to create 3-4 pieces

    This class far exceeded my expectations. I came home with four beautiful pieces even though this was my first time dying.

    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.
