2017 Course Information: Shibori Tie Dyeing

Shibori Tie Dyeing

Shibori is a traditional Japanese dye process using indigo, a rich blue dye. The process uses folds, household objects, and stitches to create beautiful resists. For this Saturday afternoon workshop, students will use indigo dye, cotton, household and natural objects, and gloves while learning this delightful means of creating one-of-a-kind fabrics that can be used in making clothes, quilts and other crafts.

Instructor :Lane Berg

Lane Berg is primarily an acrylic and mixed media artist, with explorations into printmaking and photography. He studied art and social work at Delta State University, receiving a BSW and an M.Ed. and currently teaches K-12 art at Timbo School as well as beginner mixed media art workshops in Mountain View. As a teacher, he has dabbled in almost everything. He says “Just about all of my personal work is influenced by the Japanese notion of wabi sabi, essentially a celebration of imperfection.” His delightfully imperfect works have a fanciful richness that suggests an interest in underlying realities. For the last 10 years he has shown in the longest running gallery in Vicksburg, Mississippi, the Attic Gallery. He recently won a merit award at the Greenville, MS Invitational Show for a mixed media painting and in 2016 he taught a professional artists workshop “Wabi-Sabi, celebrating Imperfection in Mixed Media”.
