Shibori with Indigo, Madder and Pomegranate w Ana Lisa Hedstrom


The workshop will focus on Arashi shibori pole wrapping,  Katano machine stitch resist, and Itajime folding and clamping including using Kyokechi carved clamps.

We will begin with traditional techniques and move to contemporary adaptations.

Students will make natural indigo vats with both henna and whole fruit.

Using the one bath method we will work with madder red, pomegranate yellow, and combinations with indigo.

Ana Lisa will bring samples of Japanese indigo dyed shibori and examples of her own work.

Join us for a week of  intense exploration and experimentation! Feb 19-23, 2018
