Stretch your creativity with artist Jenny Fong of Modern Shibori as
she leads a fun, hands-on shibori
(bind-resist dyeing) workshop. You will be able to dye three bandanas and a
personal piece of fabric to take home, applying Michel Garcia's 1-2-3 method using organic indigo,
fructose and pickling lime. While at the museum, be sure to check out shibori and other fashion on view in the
special exhibition Kimono Refashioned.
Jenny Fong is a fashion designer and
textile artist living and working in Berkeley, California. She trained at
Parsons the New School for Design in New York City, where she earned a fashion design
degree. She developed a love for indigo while working in men's design at Levi-Strauss.
Fong uses a range of GOTS-certified organic fibers, botanical dyes and shibori techniques to create her unique
brand of eco-conscious couture, Modern Shibori.
