Event Overview

Welcome to an introductory class for Shibori dyeing.  Shibori, or resist dyeing, is a Japanese dyeing technique that typically involves folding, twisting and/or bunching cloth and binding it, then dyeing it. The way the fabric is folded and bound creates a distinct repetitive pattern or one of random patterns.  In this introductory class you will experience folding or tying and binding a silk scarf and an item of your choice.  You may even choose to hand sew as your binding technique of choice.  This will be a light hearted and fun opportunity to create both wearable art and functional art.


All supplies are provided except for the item you choose to bring.  Suggestions for items to bring include a light colored or white t-shirt, dinner napkins or other items made of natural fabric, cotton, silk or linen.  I like to look for items in my closet or at the closest used clothing store.


Remember, you will leave this class with a completed dyed silk scarf and the item of your choice to bring to the class.


Please bring your drink of choice and creative spirit.

MORE ABOUT YOUR HOST

Placitas, NM resident Kayleen Dowell was first introduced to shibori dyeing techniques by the fabric artist Julia March Crocetto while living in Alaska. She currently takes creative inspiration from walks in the desert high country, from the constantly- changing big-sky views that surround her mountain abode, and from the bright stars and kaleidoscopic re-visioning given through seasonal transitions.
Her journey has brought her to an embrace of the eldering process and an exploration of that inevitability within dedicated community.
She is eager to share the basic techniques for resist dyeing with others so they can experience the excitement and elation of creating their own art.

    This was such a fun class. The techniques were easy to learn and we produced beautiful art without having to spend hours! The best part was that no design was bad... everything turned out great in its own way. I really enjoyed the freedom and flexibility of this art.
