Shibori & Indigo Dye Workshop

Written By Janessa Knodt | Jul 31, 2017

Get blue with Assembly PDX! In this hands-on workshop you’ll learn the basics of shibori-inspired folding and binding techniques to create beautiful patterns on fabric with a natural indigo dye. They’ll discuss setting up the vat and spend time preparing materials for dyeing. By the end of class, you’ll finish the dye process, and be amazed as the stunning one-of-a-kind patterns are unfolded and revealed!


Tea towels and tote bags will be provided and other dyeable items will be available for purchase. You may bring up to two small items of your own to dye, and they must be of natural fibers such as cotton or silk. No large items like sheets or fabric yardage. Things may get a little messy, so wearing clothes and shoes that you wouldn’t mind getting stained is encouraged!


Complimentary refreshments and snacks provided.
