eQuilter is thrilled to host fiber artist and color specialist Cindy Lohbeck of Scottsdale, AZ...for this Itajime Shibori one-day workshop in the eQuilter.com classroom, plus 3 other one-day dyeing classes.
Itajime Shibori, also known as shaped resist dyeing will bring bold and graphic patterns to your hand dyed collection. We spend the morning learning several different folds, and how choosing the perfect combination of fold, template, pressure and angle can create infinite pattern and design possibilities. After lunch, we will move outside to explore several different ways to dye our fabric collection.
PLEASE NOTE: Materials Fee $80.00 per student includes an extensive collection of reusable acrylic Itajime templates, squeeze bottles, mixing cups, funnel, 3 yards high quality “pfd” fabric, all dye, fixatives, gloves, dust masks and detergent.
With more than 25 years experience as an interior designer, she has a love of textiles and an eye for color that is the foundation for her winning designs. She has worked as a professional faux finisher and muralist, and also owned a tie-dyed clothing business in the early years, all of which helped refine her color mixing skills. With the addition of quilting to her creative repertoire in 2002, all of her passions collided and Hands On Hand Dyes was born. Committed to quality, convenience and simplicity, her hand dye kits teach color mixing, dye techniques and value lessons in fast, fun and affordable methods. Her beautiful color pallets and value gradations are perfect for today’s busy quilter, and make hand dying fabric accessible to everyone.
