Japanese Tie-dyeing, or Shibori, is an ancient Japanese way to dye textiles using indigo-type dye to create fabulous patterns on cloth, quilts, pillow covers, sheets, whatever – let your imagination go crazy! Shibori utilizes folding, binding, twisting, bunching (with rubber bands), and stitching (with thread) cloth, and then dyeing it

Bring List: Bring as many textiles as you want and take as much time as you want to create as many pieces of clothing/textiles as you want! Although some mixed fabrics work, some don’t, so to be safe bring 100% cotton, linen, and silk garments, etc. A good place to look is the goodwill on sale days. If you find some white cotton face masks, we can dye them, too! Protective clothing – apron/smock or wear clothes you don’t care about. NOTE: it won’t hurt you to get some dye on you! Rubber gloves (I will have plenty, but you might want to bring your own long rubber kitchen gloves) Large Ziploc bags and old towels for taking your wet masterpieces home. As many pieces of cloth/clothing you want to dye. Make sure that they are 100% cotton, linen, silk, etc. I can’t guarantee that the dye will work well on other material. Snacks. More snacks. And drinks.
