Shibori Dyeing and the Magic of Color with We Gather | $145 Individual, Bring a Friend for $270

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

Join us for an afternoon of textile and color magic with Whitney Crutchfield of We Gather. This shibori dyeing workshop is perfect for a textile newbie or for someone who is looking to expand their textile horizons. In this 3-hour class, we'll cover the basics of this magical Japanese method with folding, cinching, and binding techniques. You'll learn how to mix a dye bath and experiment with color through immersion dye processes. Get familiar with these low-impact dyes and walk away with your own super soft and cozy multifunctional hand-dyed textile, perfect as a beach blanket, scarf, or table runner. All materials are included, but students are welcome to bring small natural fiber (cotton, linen, silk) fabric items they would like to dye.
