SPRING 2019 TBD - Indigo + Shibori Cotton Napkin Workshop

SPRING 2019 TBD - Indigo + Shibori Cotton Napkin Workshop



Students will initially learn how a non-fermented indigo vat is made. Natural East Indian indigo powder will be used, and the vat will be ‘reduced’ using a commercially available agent (theox). While the vat develops, students will be shown four SHIBORI techniques: a folded, a clamped, a tied and a twisted method. You will enjoy the surprise of seeing everyone's unique creations and go home with four very different white and blue cotton napkins.
