Having just returned from a Shibori workshop in Japan, Maine fiber artist Mary DeLano is excited to share her new knowledge with you.  Learn how to create vivid blue designs on cloth.  You will begin by twisting, folding, stitching, clamping, wrapping and compressing several pieces of fabric into a variety of shapes. Then you will dip the fabric into a magical indigo vat to produce shades ranging from pale blue to denim. Finally, you will unwrap the dyed pieces to reveal stunning patterns – both simple and complex.

Mary will also bring the textiles she collected in Japan for you to see.

Mary will have advanced projects available for students who have taken this class before.  These projects will require students to do homework.  If you are interested, please email Mary at mdelanoart@gmail.com.

No experience required.  This class also produces guaranteed laughter and new friends.

Participants need to bring:

-Tight fitting dish washing gloves
-Feel free to bring along your own additional fabric to try out
-Bagged lunch & water bottle

All other materials will be supplied.

This class is planned to be outdoors under tents.
Class size: 10
