Our very first online learning video! An in depth look at shibori and indigo dyeing, aimed at beginners. In this 2 hour video, Julie guides you through fourteen different methods to bind, fold, stitch and manipulate fabric to create pattern. Examples are demonstrated on our Organic Cotton Napkins.
She then guides you through creating an indigo vat using our Indigo Kit, as well as how to tell when it's ready to dye, special tips for using it, oxidizing, and how to rinse and neutralize after dyeing. There are also segments on preparing your fabric for dyeing, choosing thread for stitched shibori, and little tricks like the best way to tie a knot.
The video is divided into chapters and comes with a detailed PDF so that you can choose the shibori techniques that you would like to try, and skip ahead to those segments.
The video will be sent as a digital download, and instructions on how to download it will arrive as soon as your purchase is complete. A password is needed to access the video, the password can be found just below the link to the video on the pdf, after purchase.
It is also available as a bundle with everything you need to get going - one Indigo Kit, six Organic Cotton Napkins, a skein of extra strong nylon thread, and the video. With this option, the video will still be available immediately, and the kit and supplies will be sent to you in the mail.
