Fine Arts Institute - The Art of Shibori Silk Dyeing - Summer II
Saturday, August 7 at 11:00am to 1:00pm
SAVS/School for Art & Visual Studies, SAVS 229
LOCATION: SAVS Room 229 INSTRUCTOR: Laverne Zabielski CLASS FEE: $90.00 MATERIALS FEE: Workshop fee includes materials. Using the Shibori technique for dyeing silk, we will explore how color dominates our life, not only in creating beautiful things but as a way to tell our story. Shibori, an ancient Japanese technique, is based on manipulating fabric. You will learn Arashi Shibori by wrapping cloth around a pole or rope. The cloth resists the dye and creates a pattern. You will also learn to choose colors that speak to you and then place at least three on the silk. This creates movement and depth. The real pleasure attained using the Shibori technique is when you open each steamed package and discover the results! This is an experienced based class focused on identifying your color palette and the words that resonate with you. You will you leave with two beautiful silk scarves. All materials are included in your enrollment fee.
