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 Mo Kelman is back this year with her Snow Farm Shibori Intensive.
Workshop: 6 Bamboo Scarves in 3 Days
Date: May 28 – 30, 2016
Location: Snow Farm, Williamsburg, MA
In this three day session, participants will learn three different shibori methods to produce six bamboo scarves. Traditional itajime clamping, arashi pole-wrapping, and boshi capping techniques, as well as contemporary spin-offs will be covered. The fabrics will be dyed by two methods: immersion in vats, and directly painting or dipping.
The emphasis of the class will be on learning to successfully design, organize and layer large and small-scale patterns. The scarves will be made of lustrous bamboo fabric, which drapes like silk, dyes vibrantly, and is easy on the environment.
