Date Night @ The DAC: Shibori Indigo Dyeing Workshop Wednesday September 18, 2019 from 7-9pm

“Shibori” is a Japanese dyeing technique that typically involves folding, twisting or bunching cloth and binding it, then dyeing it in indigo. Sit with local fiber artists and create your very own unique fabric art. Learn how to create a traditional Sekka pattern, or surrealistic spirals by using techniques such as pleating and mooring. Not only will you leave with a pretty handkerchief (or two), you will feel good because you are a maker of Shibori.  

Each participant will leave with two handkerchiefs. Participants are allowed to bring one small personal item (such as a shirt or scarf) to dye if they wish.  Space is limited! Please dress in clothing that you do not mind getting messy. 

Parking at the DAC is free but limited. There is parking available at the Palmer Event Center. In addition there are parking options available off Riverside Drive and Lee Barton Drive. We also want to encourage all our friends to drive safely, or better yet catch a taxi, ride share, bus or bike!
