I have been investigating online Shibori workshops this week and wanted to share what I have found thus far. These three seem to be the best options (from what I could find).
1). “BASIC SHIBORI DYEING WITH INDIGO” by Shibori.com.au (trailer here). The class is $55 and their website notes that this class, “offers easy to follow steps for 10 techniques including Itajime, Kumo, Stripes, Arashi and more!” I like that this course teaches three types of Shibori for one price. I haven’t taken it, but it looks like a good option.
2). “FOLDING AND CLAMPING TECHNIQUES & TYING TECHNIQUES” by Madesmith Academy. These are two separate classes, each are $49. I actually took the folding and clamping class and it teaches you tortoiseshell, square, circle, and lattice techniques. The instructions are clear and precise / a good tutorial for Shibori first timers.
3). “LET’S DYE WITH INDIGO” by Shibori Girl ($75). Okay, this class looks amazing. It covers everything from starting and maintaining your Indigo vat to itajime and stitched Shibori. It also provides .PDF documents for future reference. I may check this one out.
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT IF YOU KNOW OF ANY OTHER OPTIONS OUT THERE
