Modern Shibori - Radiant Heart Dishcloth ImageMake four distinctive dishcloths using Japanese shibori resist dying techniques. Although traditional shibori was done with indigo, modern shibori uses colors and other types of dye. The Japanese shibori techniques that students will experiment with are itajime (clamping and binding), makiage (stitching and binding), arashi (pole wrapping), and mokume (woodgrain stitch). Students will color the fabric in class. The dishcloths need to sit at least 24 hours in a ziplock bag for best results. Students will rinse, wash and dry out their finished tie dyed pieces at home.

There will be an additional supply fee of $30 payable to the instructor on the day of class. The supply fee includes: Fiber reactive dyes (various colors), rubber bands, needle and thread, sinew (waxed string), plastic exam gloves, PVC pipes, and 4 flour sack dishcloths (24” x24”).

What to Bring:

  • $30 supply fee
  • Rubber dishwashing gloves (1 pair)
  • Any type of bucket with a handle
  • Two old towels, rags or t-shirts which will be used to soak up dye
  • Small scissors
  • 4 quart or gallon Ziploc bags
  • One plastic bag (any type) 
  • Apron (optional)* 
  • Wear comfortable clothing**
  • Water and a personal snack (optional)

*Water resistant apron might be available at Daiso Stores (call them first to check)

**Wear any clothes that you wouldn't mind getting a tiny colored splash on, and old comfortable shoes. It’s best to leave jewelry such as rings and bracelets at home.
