Exploring two different traditional textile design processes through the use of natural dyes and synthetic textile paints. In this workshop, students will get a brief intro into the history of natural dyes and the development of synthetic dyes during the industrial revolution. The first process is shibori, which is a traditional Japanese process of binding and tying the acts as a resist method for creating designs on fabric through using the natural dye indigo as our dye for the dye bath. The second process is called batik, which it is also a resist process using no toxic soy wax and textile paints. Batik has been a traditional textile design process, practiced in cultures of the Middle East, India, Central Asia and Africa. Students may bring their own fabric/clothing and leave with a wearable design of their own.
