Shibori: The element of surprise

Our third visit with the Silver Club and Elderberry Club Members explored Shibori, a Japanese cloth-dyeing technique.  Working together, students and members twisted and shaped pieces of cloth into bundles using rubber bands and twine.  The fabric was then dyed in an indigo bath and unwrapped to reveal the beautiful patterns.  Both the students and members were eager to see the result of their handiwork and happily surprised with the end result. The element of surprise became a shared experience, one that everyone enjoyed together.
