Celebrating the visual languages of PEOPLE, COMMUNITY, CULTURE, and ENVIRONMENT through the global practice of resist-dye traditions and innovations, keeping in mind authenticity, reciprocity, and networking.
WSN Member Ana Lisa Hedstrom will be giving a shibori workshop at Penland this summer, working with both natural and synthetic dyes!
Shibori – Kyokechi and Katano
Summer Session 7: Aug. 24-30, 2014
Penland School of Crafts, Penland, North Carolina
This class will explore pattern dyeing by channeling dye through patterns cut into clamps (kyokechi) and by machine-stitching folded cloth before dyeing (katano). We’ll compare various dye applications with these techniques: a natural-fermentation indigo vat, natural dyes from extracts and plants, and synthetic dyes. We’ll add texture by resist-scouring organza. The workshop will include discussions of design, with an emphasis on piecing for clothing, quilts, and art textiles. Samples and books will be available for inspiration
