Shibori & Indigo

Instructor: Sandy Shelenberger

Saturday, September 21st | 10am–4pm

Indigo is an ancient dye that is used to create a traditional magical blue coloring. You will learn how to create patterns on fabric and scarves, which will then be dyed in an Indigo vat. Shibori is a Japanese word used to describe a variety resist technique such as binding, twisting, or clamping that create a variety of patterns. Learn the traditional methods of Shibori, then create your own patterns. Individual experimentation is encouraged, no experience necessary. All materials provided but you may also bring items to dye (such as fabric/clothing) if you'd like.

Instructor Bio: Sandy’s love of sewing and designing her own creations came together during a quilting class she took in 1984, where she began to see quilting as an art form and as a means of self-expression. She hand-dyes most of her fabric and uses surface-design techniques such as Shibori, batik or experimental screenprinting to create her distinctive marks and patterns. In addition to quilting, Sandy works in the media of encaustic and cold wax. Her art has been featured in 2 solo exhibitions as well as invitational and juried group events at FACES of Fiber, Estes Park, CO (2022), Visions Art Museum (San Diego, CA, 2018), Woman Made Gallery (Chicago, IL), Ohio Craft Museum (Columbus, OH) and an international juried exhibition at Schweinfurth Arts Center (Auburn, NY).
