Everyone will complete a soft wrap/scarf or a cotton table runner.  Focus will be on weaving skills, fringe-making and finishing options.

Daytime Class 1:00-3:30PM
or
Evening Class  6:30-9:00PM

SHIBORI DYEING CLASS
shibori

Shibori, or Japanese tie-dye, actually consists of lots of different methods forbinding, tying, sewing, or twisting cloth before applying dyes, but in this class we’re going to focus on the twisting part, or “arashi shibori” (also known as pole-wrapping shibori).

We’ll use narrow scarves that are perfect for wrapping around your head, or augmenting your waist as a belt. Or, hey, just hang them on a balcony and let their loveliness float in the breeze. Each student will make one scarf, and come away with everything you’ll need to know to do these on your own.  Additional scarves will be available for purchase.

Wear your messy clothes!!

Payment is required prior to Class. $35 for an individual class. For payment for either time, go to http://www.thealchemygroup.biz/PMCclasses.html and sign up today!
If you have already prepaid, please send me an email for your designated class time.
