Stitched Shibori (Japanese traditional Tie-Dye technique) has been widely practiced by many contemporary natural dyers both nationally and internationally. During the class, students will learn a story about one of the indigo plant species “Polygonum tinctorium”, how to make a natural fructose indigo vat, and how to make a basic stitched shibori pattern on fabric. Students will learn how to dye with natural products, meaning there is no waste and no chemicals that will damage the planet through this dying process. Rosa will also briefly discuss her work as a gardener and the importance of growing pollinator plants like Indigo, at home.
