Join us to learn the ancient technique of Shibori Indigo Dyeing and create your own unique set of 4 dinner napkins to bring home! We will learn the basics of the Japanese art of folding and binding fabric to create timeless patterns, mix a vat of indigo dye together, and experience the magic of this natural dyeing technique! Each guest is welcome to bring a small piece of their own to dye at the end, which must be 100% natural fiber.
