I'd Rather Dye: Shibori Indigo Dying Workshop with Wild Riot | $100

  • Makers Mess 602 North Hoover Street Los Angeles, CA, 90004 United States (map)

Join us for a creative afternoon of learning, sharing and collaborating! During the workshop Brittany Adams, a Los Angeles based fiber artist, will guide you through the fundamentals of the ancient Shibori pattern making process with a concentration on folded, tied and clamped resist dying. You will also learn to create and maintain your own indigo vat, and instruction will be given on a creating a variety of patterns. This workshop is for all skill levels and beginners are highly encouraged to participate as Shibori is a practically foolproof technique, always yielding beautiful results! 1 cotton fabric hand towel and 1 bandana will be provided, but please feel free to bring your own goods to dye (pillowcases, bandanas, scarfs, t-shirts encouraged), but please limit the number to 2-3 items, and please avoid bulky pieces (towels, linens, bedding etc.), as vat space and time are limited. Natural fibers accept dye the best! See you in the studio!
