Jenny Lemons Workshops

Online Workshop 1/15: Introduction to Shibori- Naturally dye with indigo

This online workshop takes place on Saturday, January 15th, from 11 AM -12:30 PM PST via Zoom Meeting. You will receive login instructions before the workshop. 

Shibori is the Japanese art of binding and folding fabric in different patterns before dyeing. It is the perfect technique to use when naturally dyeing with indigo because all of the folded areas remain bright white. 

In this class, we will dye with indigo while experimenting with different binding and resist patterns. Jennie Lennick of Jenny Lemons will share tips and tricks on how to create your own dye baths. We will go over what kinds of alums and mordants to add to your natural dye baths, and how to make sure your dye job lasts forever.

Everyone will learn several binding, folding, and resist techniques to create beautiful tie-dye designs. 

We will learn 6 techniques including:

  • Shape Resist Technique
  • Accordion Folding
  • Honeycomb Technique
  • Triangle Folding
  • Rings
  • Galaxy Fold
