What you'll do

In our 5 hour intensive workshop, we'll jump right into learning about Shibori dyeing, the many different processes that can be used to produce patterns onto fabrics, and we'll begin to dye after discussing these techniques. We'll discuss different folding methods, clamping, stitching, binding, and pole-wrapping- all ways to manipulate fabric before immersing into dye to achieve bold and beautiful patterns. As I demonstrate each technique, you'll have the opportunity to dye on cotton and silk which is provided for you, as well as the natural fabrics you bring to dye your for your own personal projects!

Learn more about Simone

Simone

Studying Textiles and Material studies, and after obtaining a BFA concentrating on textiles, in July of 2015, I began a journey of creating my own, hand-dyed fabrics, launching a brand in which I silk paint and dye onto silk, sewn into garments and sold on my online storefront, www.simoneevans.com. When I am not creating, I love to share this art process and passion of mine in youth and adult workshop settings.
