The Machine Knitters Guild of the San Francisco Bay Area is hosting a meeting with Cochenille Design Studio owner and designer, Susan Lazear. She will be sharing the inspiration that she found during her travels in Japan. In the afternoon, there will be a workshop with indigo dying using some of the Japanese Shibori techniques that we saw in the morning. You are invited to bring in a scarf knit with natural fibers (wool, silk, cotton, alpaca) to dye. You may also knit some swatches or washcloth size pieces to practice different techniques. The following is a list of items to use in your Shibori dyeing. Some items will be brought but please bring some of your own. The afternoon session is open to Machine Knitters Guild of the San Francisco Bay Area members and will cost $25.

Shibori Devices: Various clamps Pieces of thin wood (matching pairs) and C-clamps String Cord/Rope – maybe ½” Buttons/marbles Rubber bands (elastics) Plastic PVC Piping – 1-2” diameter, and longer than the depth of liquid in the bucket (we will be using standard 5 gallon buckets like you would find at Home Depot).
