Alliance for the Arts Saturday, May 26th

Arashi Shibori is a Japanese fabric dyeing technique that results in a pleated cloth with an angled pattern that resembles driving rain.  In fact, the word Arashi means “storm” in Japanese.  The effect is achieved by tightly wrapping fabric around a pole, which is then bound with string and compressed before dyes are applied.  The one day workshop is presented by Cape Coral fiber artist Roseline Young, owner of Roseline Weaving Studio.

She creates one-of-a kind wall hangings and wearable art, as well as teaching spinning and weaving.  It’s Saturday, May 26th from 10:00am to 4:00pm and is $45 for Alliance members, or $55 for non-members. Pre-registration is required.  Participants should bring several yards of cotton, silk or rayon fabric, washed and ready for dyeing.  Cloth may be cut into “fat quarters” or approximately 18″ x 22″ or slightly larger. Fabric produced may be used for clothing, quilting, wall hangings, etc.  Call 239-939-2787 or go to www.ArtInLee.org for more information.
