MINDFUL MAKING INDIGO SOCIAL
HAWTHORNE ARTS COMPLEX
SATURDAY, MAY 19, 2018
Stuck in a rut? Shibori is perfect for those who tend to get “creatively” paralyzed. Shibori - a Japanese technique of binding, stitching, and clamping fabric to create patterns when indigo dye is applied - is a process that embraces the art of the unexpected. It is the play between structure and chaos, between planning and letting go where every outcome is a surprise.
Our creative afternoon of learning, sharing and collaborating was hosted in our new home, the Hawthorne Arts Complex. We learned many different shaped resist techniques such as shibori and itajime and quickly got busy with our hands in the indigo vats.
