Shibori is in one word, stunning. Using beautiful silk scarves and this ancient Japanese dyeing method we will create your own scarf that defies beauty. Japanese dyeing is perfect for the inexperienced and we will cover various tying, clamping and resist-dye Shibori techniques. Choose your own technique to make your own unique hand-dyed scarf.
Note: Feel free to bring your own things in (bedding, scarves, pj's, jeans or pillowslips) to add to the vat. People get 'shibori fever' and usually can't stop!
