Shibori Indigo Katazome Workshop

Adult 2-Day Workshop

Katazome is a Japanese resist process used for hundreds of years in Japanese textiles. Traditional artisans created a resist paste made from a rice flour mixture and applied it to cloth through the use of elaborately hand-carved stencils. Where ever this paste is applied will resist the dye, creating a pattern. Traditionally katazome is dyed with indigo to create the traditional white and blue of many Japanese textiles.

During this 2-day workshop, students will learn the basics of katazome, the preparation of the fabric and resist paste, the making of stencils, the application of the paste onto fabric, and the dyeing of the fabric in a natural indigo vat. Along with having access to vintage stencils from Japan, students will also learn contemporary non-traditional methods that one can use at home.
