Shibori is the Japanese technique of manipulating fabric by tying, twisting, scrunching and preparing the fabric for dyeing in numerous other ways. The results are colorful patterns that are repeated throughout the surface and are used in silk scarf designs.
Mariotti has come up with some simplified Shibori techniques that will work in a short workshop time and permit the student to make several scarves in one day.
Mariotti has been a textile instructor and professional fiber artist for more than 30 years and has exhibited her silk scarves in many local galleries around Tryon, including the gift shop at Tryon Arts and Crafts.
There will be a small materials fee per person for this workshop to cover the cost of scarves and dyes.
Advance registration for all workshops is required. For more information about the instructor or workshop, including tuition and supply costs, please contact Tryon Arts and Crafts School (TACS) at 828-859-8323 or by email
More details and examples of projects are available on the TACS website,
There are a limited number of spaces available.
