Nui Shibori – June 30th
Saturday, June 30th
from 11:30 – 1:30
Shibori is a Japanese dyeing technique that involves folding, twisting or bunching cloth and binding it, then dyeing it in indigo. In stitch-resist shibori, the patterning is created by lines using a running stitch made with needle and thread — the stitches resist the dye, creating beautiful patterns and color variations.
In this workshop, you’ll learn different stitching techniques as you plan and sew your own unique stitched pattern. Once your stitching is complete, you’ll dye your piece in indigo dye, then remove the stitches to reveal your one-of-a-kind results. Shibori dyeing is truly an amazing craft, as every piece you dye is a little bit of a surprise.

In addition to dyeing the fabric provided in the class, students are also welcome to bring a couple of their own small items to use up our dye bath: natural fabrics (cotton, linen, or silk) tend to hold the dye best, and please no large items (no bedding, duvet covers, curtains, etc).
Small class guaranteed.

About our teacher:
Rajni Kavula is the artist and maker behind Adroit’s beautiful Indigo-dyed clothing and accessories, which you might have seen here at the shop. She has a degree in fine arts, and started her handmade journey with crochet, then later hand dyeing, though she is always learning and experimenting with new techniques. She mostly works with natural fabrics like linen, rayon, silk, and cotton yarn, as sustainable living is so very important in times like these. Rajni also teaches our Fiber Jewelry and Batik classes- learning new techniques has been such a wonderful experience for her, and she hopes to pass on that joy to her students!
