Shibori Dying on Silk

Artist Glennis Dolce teaches Japanese Shibori cloth dying technique in this Yosemite Conservancy art workshop.
September 12, 2016 to September 17, 2016

With the beautiful backdrop of Yosemite as our inspiration, experienced silk artist Glennis Dolce teaches a workshop on indigo, madder and shibori techniques to dye cloth with memories of your visit. Shibori, a Japanese term for the fabric manipulation used to create pattern and effects, lets you explore the fun of color and texture. Learn stitching, binding, and clamping techniques to incorporate natural imagery and landscape into your works on cloth. Join us for this workshop on multiple days for more in-depth instruction and to make a keepsake scarf to take home.

This Yosemite art workshop is wonderful fun for all ages.
