The first day of this two-day workshop will focus on indigo and shibori dyeing of recycled fabrics and threads. These will then be used the following day to make a replica of a komebukuro, or offering bag. These bags, in which offerings were taken to the local temple, were originally made from either scraps of leftover and reusable household textiles or from unused family kimonos.

As inspiration as well as for construction ideas, we will study several pieces of antique boro (tattered and mended) textiles and both antique and vintage komebukuro bags. Several contemporary pieces will also be on display. Fabrics will include hemp, silk, cotton, and linen.

$72 members, $90 non-members, plus $40 materials fee due to instructor at beginning of class (cash only). Limited to 20 participants. Museum admission included.
