Woven shibori is a relatively new technique in the weaving world. It is done by inserting extra yarn into the cloth while weaving. The extra yarns are then pulled tight which create areas that will resist penetration by the dyes. Students will choose from a number of different patterns and after sampling with treadlings and dyes, will be able to weave a scarf.

MATERIAL COST: $30.00 to be paid to the instructor on the day of the workshop. Please note: this is not a beginner class and all participants must have the ability to independently make a warp and dress a loom.
