Shibori Stream online classes are for groups of participants via Zoom. Each session will be for 2 hours with a 15 minute break. Many techniques will be covered as in a real life workshop but teaching methods will of course be different. The first class includes a short introduction and we’ll go on to discuss fabric choices and shibori thread.
First on the agenda will be stitching on a single layer of fabric to discover many options for creating pattern and design. In further classes we’ll progress into dealing with folds and making an indigo vat.
