Students will learn arashi shibori pole wrapping, sewing machine resist, itajime folding and clamping, including using kyokechi carved clamps. We will begin with the Japanese traditions and move on to contemporary adaptations.

Using fiber reactive dye in both thickened and immersion recipes, and thiox color remover we will create complex patterns and color. Students will work with cellulose and silk fabrics and learn silk scouring of organzas to create textural differences.

Ana Lisa will bring samples of Japanese indigo shibori and examples of her own work.
