“Shibori” is the ancient Japanese art of dyeing cloth. It refers to several techniques that are used to dye patterns onto cloth.
Among these techniques are “tying” with string, stitching a pattern, or clamping the folded cloth with wooden blocks.
Master artist, Setsuko Hayashi, will lead another of her popular workshops on Sunday, Feb. 16 at 1:00 pm in the JCI Nisei Veterans Hall.
