What's Included

Shibori is an ancient Japanese resist-dye technique that involves creasing, folding, dyeing, binding and knotting, to create beautiful and well defined patterns. In this three hour workshop, students will learn the basics of Shibori using one of the most important dyes in Japan (and in the world), Indigo. Create a beautiful hand dyed cotton blanket under the supervision of Brooklyn based designer and Shibori expert Katrin Reifeiss. Although this one will be hard to part with, your loved one is sure to be thrilled with your results. What better gift than handmade? // Instructor: Katrin Reifeiss, katrinreifeiss.com

About This Organizer

Textile Arts Center aspires to unify and empower the textile community, and advocate for the handmade. 

 

Textile Arts Center (TAC) is a NYC-based resource facility dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of textiles through creative educational programs for children and adults. At TAC, we aspire to unify the textile community and advocate for the handmade by providing accessible, skills-based classes that reinvigorate engagement with traditional crafts. Techniques like weaving, sewing, and dyeing are practical, connective, and process-driven -- common denominators for designers, artists, and creative practitioners around the world. Because these activities are so widely used, they help to foster community and bring creativity back into our daily lives. They are part of our collective history and vital to our ongoing expressions of design, art, and culture.
