Shibori, the Japanese art of tie dying, looks a lot more complicated than it actually is. You can create beautiful, random patterns by simply wrapping string around cloth and dying it, or you can make more intricate, intentional designs by stitching your “resists” instead.​

In this captivating, four-hour workshop, textile artist Camille Duanno will teach you how to create three stitched shibori patterns: wood grain, circular, and free-form.​

Everyone will leave the class with three cotton squares (two 22” x 22” squares and one 17” x 17” square) that can be framed, turned into pillows, or incorporated into other projects. Each student’s pieces will be unique because each woman will stitch them differently, but they will ALL be exquisite!”​

No stitching or dying experience necessary!
