Let’s celebrate this holiday season by creating a unique silk scarf using traditional shibori resist, and the very precious ancient Pre-columbian dye, cochineal.
Sarah Winston will teach you how to create a motif onto the fabric using simple resist techniques and how to coax scarlet red out of cochineal bugs. We’ll cover also how to prepare and mordant your fabric, an important step, prior to using natural dyes.
