Tsutsugaki Dye

Come early and learn another new technique!
We introduce a Japanese traditional dye technique called "Tsutsugaki" dye which is a new class at Loop of the Loom.
It's a color resist dye method using a natural paste. This class starts at 11:00 am. It takes about one-hour for drawing with the paste over a tenugui cloth. Dry the paste on the cloth while you take a lunch break and afternoon workshop. You can dye the cloth in the Bengala workshop.
