Shibori Tea Towels Workshop with Cassie Brehmer

  • Wet Paint 1684 Grand Avenue St. Paul, MN 55105 United States (map)

Join our pal Cassie Brehmer for this fun project class as you shape, bind and dye your own tea towels featuring Jacquard’s Indigo Dye.

Shibori is the Japanese word for a variety of ways of embellishing textiles by shaping cloth and securing it before dyeing. The word comes from the verb root shiboru, “to wring, squeeze, press.” … Cloth shaped by these methods is secured in a number of ways, such as binding and knotting. Indigo dye, which comes from a plant, is one of the oldest dyes used for coloring fabrics and the one still used today to color blue jeans. This natural dye process has long been used in many cultures around the world. The unique characteristics of indigo dyeing make it easy to create wonderful resist patterns on fabric.
