BLUE SKIES INDIGO DYES
HAWTHORNE ARTS COMPLEX
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 2018
Indigo Shibori is the ancient Japanese art of resist dying using various binding, twisting, wrapping, tying and stitching techniques to achieve unpredictable and gorgeous results on fabric.
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.
