Your child will create their own beautiful scarf using the ancient technique of Shibori.  

Shibori is an ancient Japanese resist dyeing technique that dates back to the 8th century.  In this workshop, your child will twist, bind, and compress fabric to explore a variety of colourful textures and patterns on natural fibres.  Your child will use assorted objects to create their one-of-a-kind scarf to wear.

Includes all the supplies needed to make your scarf:

  • 8” x 50” 100% Silk Scarf OR a double loop infinity scarf
  • Paint Brushes
  • Fabric Dyes
  • Shibori tools

>>> The fabric needs a few days to dry. You have the option of coming back a week later to rinse and iron your finished scarf.  If you are unable to make the rinse time, we would be more then happy to do this for you, for $5. You can call us (306.550.2718) to arrange a pick up time.

NOTE: Students are encouraged to bring an apron or wear old clothes, as we will be working with dye. The messier the better.

WANT TO COME AGAIN? No problem - we welcome repeats.
If you have already attended a workshop: You are welcome to bring one or two items from home, to dye. Examples: pillow cases, t-shirt, scarf, or fabric placemats. Fabric content MUST BE 100% natural; cotton, linen, denim, flanelette, or silk (no wool please).
*Caution: If your item contains synthetic fibers, the dyes will not set properly and the technique will not work.

INSTRUCTOR: Melanie Mitchell


Do I have to come to all the dates listed?
NO, you will prep your shibori scarf project and dye it on the first date. The second date is to rinse and reveal your beautiful hand dyed wearable art. This class is facilitated as a “stand alone” event. Though if you wanted to, you would build on your skills by coming more often. Every class will have its own unique creative flare. 

Who is this workshop for?
YOU! Anyone. Everyone. This is easy for beginner crafters to learn the basics.

Do I have to have experience?
No, absolute beginners are welcome. 

Do I have to be artsy or crafty to do this?
Nope. This is an entry level skill. You need to get out be social and do something with your hands? This workshop is for you.

Is this like paint night?
No. It is better.  You can personalize it  ;)
