Shibori Dyeing In The Garden

  • June Jordan School for Equity 325 La Grande Avenue San Francisco, CA, 94112 United States (map)

Come get creative with us in the garden as we teach this traditional Japanese dye technique! In this class, you'll learn the art of Shibori dyeing as we enjoy each other's company in the garden.

Derived from the Japanese root word shiboru, Shibori means “to wring, squeeze and press.” It is a method of stitching, folding, binding and clamping a textile by hand to create a “resist” (the tightly bound area of raw cloth that cannot be penetrated by dye).

All materials and supplies will be included and each participant will be receive two tea towels to fold and dye. Please feel free to bring any additional fabric items you would like to dye.
