The day before we left on our camping trip, my guild offered a indigo shibori class at the education chair’s house.
I had never done Indigo dyeing or Shibori, so it was a wonderful opportunity to be able to take this class. Fortunately, this is a recurring class (there is always tons of interest in the class and only 10 people are allowed in the class at a time, I have already signed up for the class in November – though there are two other classes in before that one.
Here are my results:
This one was made using larger vase rocks and rubber bands
This one was smaller vase rocks in the center, marbles, and then golf balls.
I didn’t like the way this one came out at first – almost white with blue only where it is dark. I put it back in the indigo vat for about 15 seconds to get it a light blue.
I like the texture of this one and the one below.
This one was my favorite. I do wish I had folded it different though so that the blue was more consistent.
This piece was the main reason I took the class. I wanted a nice piece of dark indigo solid to go with my arrowhead quilt for the border.
