Flair in the Square - Outdoor Art Class

Thursday, August 31, 2023 (6:00 PM - 8:00 PM) (EDT)


The Amesbury Chamber of Commerce presents:
Flair in the Square
Thursday, August 31st
6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Intro to Shibori - a Japanese style of resist fabric dyeing.

During this weeks Flair on the Square, we will be working with pre-reduced indigo dye to create shibori inspired tea towels! Participants will learn a little about the history of shibori dying, before learning several different basic folds and designs. Participants will be shown how to dye their tea towels, learning tips and tricks specific to dying with indigo.

There will be soda ash used in this process, it along with the indigo bath can cause skin irritation. We will have disposable gloves available for use, however if you are concerned we suggest bringing a pair of long sleeved kitchen/cleaning gloves to class.

Thursday’s evening art class will be messy! Please dress accordingly.

These stand-alone classes were developed in partnership with the Amesbury Cultural Council. They've been set-up to take place outdoors, with limited seating, so that each student can have an enjoyable experience. Participation is limited to 15, all supplies will be provided.

These classes are open to adults and children alike, as long as children are capable of self-monitoring. Please pre-register (the fee for participating is $10.00, paid in advance). No experience required.

This is part of the Amesbury Chamber’s annual initiative to bring the community together in safe, responsible, and healthy ways right in our downtown. Sign-up, visit out downtown, and feel free to check out some of our businesses before or after creating!
