Arashi Shibori Workshop

Arashi Shibori  aka “Storm Squeeze” Workshop (On-line)

Join me for an exciting look at and exploration of Arashi Shibori    Arashi means “storm” which characterizes the patterning on fabric.  In Japan they refer to shibori as “squeeze”, hence “Storm Squeeze”.  Fabric is wrapped diagonally onto a pole, compressed and dyed.  There are many ways of making really interesting patterns on fabric with this technique.   Learn traditional and non-traditional pole wrapping techniques.  I will also introduce wrapping on a rope with some stitch work. The workshop will span two days. The first day will be instruction and some practice. You will have two weeks to work on pieces and you will have access to me via email or zoom at all times throughout the workshop.  The second date will be reviewing what you have completed and trouble shooting. You will need to have your own indigo vat or other dye method during this workshop.  

Dates:  Tuesday, July 6 and Monday, July 19  

Time: 1:30 pm EST    2-3 hours each session

Fee:  $50 by check or Zelle  0r  $52 via PayPal
