Introduction to Shibori @ Falmouth Art Center
When: Sat May 31st
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Where: 137 Gifford Street
Two-day workshop, Saturday and Sunday, May 31 and June 1.
Shibori is an ancient Japanese resist technique of creating pattern on cloth. Fabric is either stitched, folded, wrapped, or bound to create places where the dye can go and areas where it is resisted. Sometimes these techniques are combined. The resulting patterns can be bold or intricate, but they are always one-of-a-kind. There will be demonstrations, individual work time, and group dyeing with cold water fiber reactive dyes. The workshop costs $150 for members of the Falmouth Artists Guild, $175 for nonmembers. There is a $12 material fee for dyes due to the instructor on the first day.
