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.

 

 
Indigo dying with Agnes was such a fun experience. She is a great teacher with a lot of experience and will assist you with any questions you may have along the way. The event itself was organized and in a beautiful art studio space with ample space for dying outdoors. Overall, once we got to folding, blocking and dying, everyone was eagerly diving into the craft. Everyone reveled in seeing one another’s final products. Definitely will be returning for another afternoon of fun! Thanks, Agnes!
