Appalachian Piecework Studio Sessions 2019 Presents:

Shibori Techniques & the Basics of Indigo Dye

This workshop will be taught by yours truly, Nellie Rose, and assisted by my mother, Laurie Gundersen, life-time textile artist and owner of Appalachian Piecework Textile Studio in Staunton, VA. 

As an apprentice in Japan to world-renowned shibori artist and indigo-dyer, Hiroko Harada, I had to first develop my skills by forming a foundation with traditional techniques. I want to share these with you! We'll set up an indigo dye bath and we'll experiment with techniques that involve sewing, folding/clamping and pole wrapping. Indigo is an expansive rainbow that we get to dive into and play with. When it comes to indigo and shibori we can get as nerdy and technical as you'd like. Then we will take it past tradition to where you modify the technique(s) you learn to create your own unique textile pieces. 

This is a beginners course; no previous experience required. Folks with prior experience will be able to dive a bit deeper.  

Cost: $300

We will provide the tools, indigo dye, and fabric (linen & cotton) with a $45 materials fee. 

Space is limited to 10 people. Sign up here!  Questions? Inquire via this contact form
