Programma

Shibori dyeing is a historic pattern making process that is fun and creates beautiful, dramatic textiles for multiple uses in fashion and home décor. Learn this technique using indigo, a natural blue dye, as we turn 4 white napkins into pieces of art. You will learn 5 tying techniques that create unique patterns, focusing on folded, tied, and clamp resist. You will also learn how to prepare the dye vat, the dyeing process, and how to turn your napkins into other pieces of art such as accent pillows, wall hangings, and framed art. Feel free to bring up to 2 of your own textile goods to dye as well but please avoid bulky items as vat space is limited.

Enjoy this workshop in the artist's fruit tree filled backyard in a quiet local neighborhood, and with a glass of local wine.
Other things to note
Bring snacks, a water bottle (an ARO filter is available to fill up water). Transportation not provided. Bring 2 extra pieces of textiles to dye. Dress in clothing for painting or dyeing.

Born and raised in San Luis Obispo to a family of multi generational sewers, I have been intrigued my patterns and textiles for as long as I can remember. I have found an almost therapeutic outlet in creating Shibori techniques on fabric with natural indigo dye. It is very satisfying to share with others this fun, multi-sensory, and relaxing slow art form.

The workshop was the best of both worlds--relaxed and chockfull of hands-on learning. Jennifer did a terrific job teaching the history and practical aspects of Shibori. I walked away with a beautiful collection of indigo napkins and shirts and all the tips and tricks needed to do more dyeing on my own at home. I can't recommend this workshop enough!

It was wonderful, Jennifer was a very good teacher, very sweet and patient. It was a small class in a beautiful environment. The Shibori dying was very easy & so much fun to see the final results! I learned alot & would definitely do it again. I highly recommend the class.

Jennifer was a perfect teacher. She made us all feel comfortable and welcome. She was very knowledgeable about Shibori and indigo dying. We had a good time and made some nice napkins and clothing items. Thank you Jennifer we can't wait to try it again ourselves.

Jennifer's indigo workshop was the perfect compliment to our short trip through Morro Bay as we drove up the coast. We spent the morning climbing Bishops Peak then made our way to Jenn's back yard and I couldn't have imagined a better way to spend our afternoon. She was a great host and teacher. She was lovely, attentive and very interesting to talk to. It was a particularly hot day so we moved the workshop outside in the shade and drank white wine. Jenn shared her vast knowledge of Shibori dying and broke down the process for us making it super simple and fun. Things don't tend to work out for me so I imagined I'd probably screwed my projects up, however I was amazed with the end product. My partner and I ended up heading to the Madonna Inn after which was close to the workshop and had the pink champagne cake on jean's recommendation. Amazing. I've brought my items home and washed them again and they are holding that brilliant indigo. I've ordered dye and am excited to do more pieces at home asap. It was a wonderful afternoon, would highly recommend this class :)

Very casual, down-to-earth instruction. Plenty of opportunities to chat and make friends over a glass of wine. Very friendly folks, beautiful and unique artwork in the end. Would definitely do it again
