Shibori Snowflakes Class NEW!
Friday, November 3rd, 3:00 - 5:30pm
Instructor: Mia Semingson
The distinctive indigo blue of Shibori and the pristine white of paper snowflakes may seem like a strange combination, but somehow it works beautifully. (Shibori is a Japanese technique for decorating textiles by folding or shaping fabric, then securing it before dyeing.) There are two key materials for making Shibori-style snowflakes: a specialty paper that has a cloth-like feel, plus a dye made with Peerless watercolors. There will be a quick lesson at the beginning of class in how to fold the snowflakes before cutting. (It’s unusual – not what you learned in school.) There will also be some patterns to get you started, but it’s easy and fun to create your own by cutting free hand. Make a bunch of snowflakes, then start dyeing them while they’re still folded. Magic happens! The paper wicks the dye and the folds act as a resist to mimic Shibori. Just as in nature, no two of the dyed snowflakes are exactly alike.

Cancellations made up to 14 days prior to the first class meeting will be refunded or, at the participant's option, used to pay for another class. Two Hands Paperie will retain a $10 processing fee for EACH class cancelled by a participant. After 14 days, there is no refund or credit. In addition, the fee for a class cancelled within this 14-day timeframe by a participant cannot be transferred to pay for another class. These policies are to ensure that teachers are compensated for their investment in materials and in time spent preparing for the class. We reserve the right to cancel a class if fewer than 3 students enroll 48 hours prior to the scheduled class time. If for any reason Two Hands Paperie cancels a class, students will be called at the phone number on file and refunded the FULL class fee.
