THURSDAYS | OCTOBER 27 - NOVEMBER 17 | 6 PM TO 8 PM | $100
REGISTER NOW: WALL HANGING USING ANCIENT SHIBORI AND POJAGI TECHNIQUES | OCTOBER 27 - NOVEMBER 17

In this four-day workshop we will work with cotton gauze and linen fabrics to create a one of a kind wall hanging. We will explore a bit of the history of Shibori - Japanese resist and dye techniques that create wonderful surface design patterns. Also, Pojagi a Korean stitch technique that binds fabrics together with a look of stained glass.

Day One: Students will have an assortment of cotton and linen fabrics to work with, then will learn various folding, clamping, and binding techniques to create designs within the fabrics.

Day Two: We will continue with the learned Shibori techniques and apply an array of premixed colorful dyes to the fabrics that will add another dimension of pattern. Once the fabrics are dyed, they will cure in the studio for the week.

Day Three: We will begin with the “reveal” of all that we have resisted! Always exciting to see what appears on the surface of the fabrics! Traditional Pojagi techniques will be taught and explored with the dyed fabrics.

Day Four: Students will then assemble their artwork by hand stitching fabrics together to create a one-of-a-kind original hanging work of art!
