Shibori is an ancient Japanese resist-dye technique that involves creasing, folding, binding, and knotting to create beautiful patterns. In this workshop, you'll begin by making the dyes (some of them sourced from your own kitchen or garden), and will then learn the basics of Shibori to make a set of striking tea towels.

Bring a bag lunch and beverages and dress for the outdoors. We’ll be making use of Lynden’s 40 beautiful acres during our breaks, weather permitting. We have aprons, but please wear clothes suitable for artmaking.
