Event Description

Learn two fiber art processes to create a contemporary “distressed” scarf! Sarah Cady will teach Shibori, one of the earliest Japanese tie-dyeing techniques, which will create patterns on fabric with natural indigo dye. Weeks two and three are with Judy Lemish where you will piece together you dyed fabric with other upcycled cotton textiles. Using sashiko, or hand running stitches sewn with special thread through the layers of cloth, you can create pattern while reinforcing the fabric in your scarf. Derived from the Japanese boroboro, meaning something tattered or repaired, boro refers to the practice of reworking and repairing textiles. Learn more about the tradition of recycling and reworking pre-existing textiles.

Thursdays beginning October 7, 6:30-9pm for 3 weeks
