This half day workshop will introduce you to three basic traditional shibori techniques-makiage (stitched and bound), itajime (fold and clamp), and arashi (pole wrapped) shibori on silk. Traditional and contemporary samples from Shibori Girl's collection will be on hand for observation as well as many favorite books on the subject from her library.

Using a non-toxic cold water dye for silk that needs no chemicals or heat to set the dye, we will concentrate on applying these techniques in inventive ways that will inspire you to further study of this creative form of surface design. All these techniques can be applied to fabrics other than silk (cotton, linen, etc.) in addition to dyes of all kinds. Discharge work will be discussed but not attempted due to the limitations of the workspace.

This class is for beginners and beyond, the inventive nature of shibori allowing for practitioners of all levels to learn, create, and be inspired.

This is a hands on class--please wear studio attire.

Materials student should bring to class include: small scissors, seam ripper, thimble (if desired), and a notebook for jotting down any information you deem important. Minimal handouts will be provided.

$35 Japanese American National Museum members; $40 non-members, an additional $25 materials fee (cash only) will be collected at the beginning of class, admission is included. RSVP early by calling 213.625.0414, 25 students max.
