Bengala's Itajime Shibori & Tsutsugaki Dye Workshop

Learn 3 techniques in one day!
Join the fascinating sustainable dye workshop. You'll learn how to dye fabric with Bengala using a Japanese Itajime-shibori technique and a Tsutsugaki-zome technique.

One of a Japanese traditional dye technique, Tsutsugaki dye is a new class at Loop of the Loom. It's a color resist-dye method using a paste. We will start hand-drawing with the paste over a tenugui cloth, then color with a brush. The paste will be dried during the afternoon workshop. We will dye the Tsutsugaki pasted cloth in the end of the workshop.

Itajime-shibori technique make an amazing design even you are a beginner. After a short lecture and demo of sustainable dye method, you will make your own patterned tenugui cloth with a step by step instructions. A bonus project is your choice of a wool scarf, a cotton pillowcase, or tablecloth. Make a handmade gift for coming holidays. Hurry to register! Space is limited.
