Japanese Itajime Resist Natural Dyeing

Craft one of a kind Japanese garments using traditional techniques

How's this for originality? Make your own clothes. In a city where mass produced tanks line the streets, we're head over heels in love with Itajime (Google it), the traditional form of Shibori, a Japanese dyeing method that uses folding. Liz Spencer of the Dogwood Dyer will cover the basics and show you how to dye with freshly-harvested local plants to make some stunning kaleidoscopic masterpieces. And since all the material is provided, there's tons of fabric to go around; think silk scarves, handkerchiefs, and more. General admission.
