Workshop: Shibori and Ice Dyeing

October 20, 2023 @ 9:00 am 3:00 pm

We will spend the morning ice dyeing and begin prepping and stitching our shibori sampler.
After lunch we will (hopefully!) finish stitching our sampler and indigo dye our piece!

Each participant will make at least one ice dyed fat quarter and one Shibori Indigo sampler piece (see
photo). Participants are welcome to dye more or larger pieces but they will need to bring appropriate containers (see supply list).

Kits required- $15
Kits include Needle and thread for shibori stitching, one dye-ready fat quarter for ice dyeing and one
piece of prepared fabric for shibori indigo stitching. Use of a rack for fat quarter ice dyeing. Weight
for indigo dyeing. Protective gloves. Facial mask

Supplies needed for workshop:
~one plastic shoe box
~one water soluble marker
~one 12-inch ruler
~Small scissors

If you want to ice dye a larger piece of fabric or several fat quarters, you will need to bring a bigger
plastic box (Target has them approx. 16 inches x 22 inches). I will bring a vat of mordant to prepare any additional ice dyeing fabrics – just make sure your fabric has been washed.
