Teacher: Catherine Ruhl

What you'll learn in this dye class:

Learn the ancient Japanese art of Shibori or indigo tie-dye. First students will learn techniques for tying, folding, and dipping your fabric. Then students will learn how to prepare a vat of indigo.

I will go over 30 shibori folds and binds to give you a full understanding of the resist process.

Due to social distancing this workshop will be a virtual workshop. I recommend setting it up in a place where you can get a little messy (due to the nature of indigo). If you can't go outdoors you can put paper or plastic down to protect the floor (that's what I do in my Brooklyn apt). If you can't set up and want to watch the demo, that is ok. Each student will get a PDF with instructions after the class.

Please reach out to [email protected] for more information regarding the Indigo kit (please allow for delivery time if you want to participate)

All skill levels are welcome. You can choose to dye along with me or just observe if you don't have all the materials. Multiple pieces can be dyed in the vat and I would encourage you to invite friends to share supplies. 

Note: Dyes are permanent if they get on your clothes, so please dress accordingly.

Shibori Indigo Tie Dye for Beginners
Reviewed by Reine M. on 6/5/2022
Catherine did a great job explaining the process. I’ve did a lot of dyeing during the summer of 2020 using kits. She gave me confidence to move on to mixing my own batch. The folding was really helpful. I would take other classes from her.

The class was so fun! I took it with a couple of my nieces and we had a blast. If I were to take the class again, I would pay attention to Catherine as she goes through the steps of folding and dyeing and then when she sends the link for the class, start the process for yourself. It’s so much easier to pause the video if you need extra time and resume when you are ready. I would highly recommend the class.

The instructor was extremely competent and showed us various ways to create patterns on the cloth before dyeing. It was well worth the 2 hours and she was very accommodating and answered everyone's questions. I would take another class with her anytime.She was awesome!
