Horizontal TabsDescription Gain confidence and facility with the properties of silk, weighing and mixing materials and dye, color mixing specific colors and layering color in two steps. Students will learn the techniques of Itajime Shibori, which uses folded resists to create patterns, and Kumo Shibori, which employs resists such as rubber bands, marbles or other objects tied into the fabric to create patterns. Tuesday, July 11, 2017 Regstration Fee: $110 (includes $25 materials fee) *K-12 Educators: Earn 6 State of Michigan SCECH clock hours by attending this workshop. Register Here Students will dye two silk satin scarves (14” x 72”) in this day-long class, and explore more concepts like the properties of silk, weighing and mixing materials and dye, color mixing for specific colors, and layering color on the scarves in two steps--the base color and then the color(s) of the pattern. Patterns will be made by using the techniques of Itajime Shibori, which uses folded resists to create patterns; and Kumo Shibori, which employs resists such as rubber bands, marbles or other objects that are tied into the fabric to create patterns. Beyond the more in-depth discussion of dyeing concepts, the class will focus on finessing techniques to achieve more specific results--from envisioning the scarf to executing your creative vision. Prerequisite is previous experience dying silk scarves, or participation in Shibori: Dyeing and Painting on Silk Scarves for Beginners.
