Saturday and Monday, August 29 & 31, 2015: Katano Machine Stitch Resist
of hand stitching Shibori, in this workshop you’ll use a sewing machine
to explore the contemporary possibilities of producing modular pieces
for piecing and quilting. You’ll make channels of resist, where dyes
will be prevented from penetrating, by machine stitching through folds
of cotton or silk. You will end up with a series of samples using a
variety of fabrics and dye.
