Shibori Tea Towels Workshop with Cassie Brehmer

Join our pal Cassie Brehmer for this fun project class as you shape, bind and dye your own tea towels featuring Jacquard’s Indigo Dye.

Shibori is the Japanese word for a variety of ways of embellishing textiles by shaping cloth and securing it before dyeing. The word comes from the verb root shiboru, “to wring, squeeze, press.” … Cloth shaped by these methods is secured in a number of ways, such as binding and knotting. Indigo dye, which comes from a plant, is one of the oldest dyes used for coloring fabrics and the one still used today to color blue jeans. This natural dye process has long been used in many cultures around the world. The unique characteristics of indigo dyeing make it easy to create wonderful resist patterns on fabric.

Students will learn the twining technique, the fundamentals of materials selection, basket shaping, and the importance of tension while making an approximate 15" diameter x 3" tall basket.

Baskets will be made from multiple diameters of round reed which lend textural interest. The split spoke and twined construction of this basket base will boast a colorful spiral pattern. There will be vibrant colors to choose from for the basket base as well as black and brown round reed for those with a more subdued palette. All round reed will be pre-dyed (with Jacquard Basic Dyes) and prepared for this specific project.

Requirements: age 18+; hand strength required.

Cost: $300 (2-day workshop, 10am-6pm each day)
