About this workshop:

A dyed silk scarf.
Discover the Japanese art of Shibori and expand your creative horizons in this NHMU Craft Workshop presented by Craft Lake City! Shibori is a centuries-old hand-dyeing technique that produces a different and unique result every time. We will provide the silk scarf, and you will make it uniquely yours using a variety of Shibori techniques including folding, crumpling, stitching and twisting. Get ready to have fun and walk away with a wearable work of art! Please note that we will be using dye specific to silk, rather than traditional Indigo dye.
