From Our Classrooms to Yours: Shibori – the Japanese Art of Shaped Resist Dyeing

From the science of dyeing to the mathematical precision of the patterns, shibori is a form of art that is applicable across multiple disciplines and age groups. This presentation by NCTA master teacher Kachina Leigh will start with a brief history of shibori in Japan and move to the present day. Resources, practical tips, and suggestions for the use of non-traditional materials will be addressed, enabling teachers to share this art form with students in elementary grades to high school.
