East Building, Studio 2
Textile artist Susan Fennell introduces you to Shibori, a shortened version of the Japanese term Aizome shibori, which describes varied forms of resists or cloth manipulation used to create textile patterns. In this class participants create patterns on cloth through Itajime (folding and board clamping), Arashi (pole wrapping), various forms of Nui (stitching), and other means of fabric manipulation. These pieces are immersed in an indigo dye vat, unbound, and opened to reveal unexpected and magical results.
Registration is limited; enroll by the Tuesday before class online, or call the Museum Box Office, (919) 715-5923. Bring a bag lunch. Supplies list here.
