Bandhani Tie and Dye Workshop
When: Monday, July 2 - Tuesday, July 3, 10 AM - 4PM
Where: Mighty Tieton Warehouse, 608 Wisconsin Ave.
A chance to get your hands dirty and learn a traditional dye technique taught by Indian bandhani master, A. Jabbar Khatri.
A. Jabbar Khatri comes to Tieton from the Kutch, India July 2 - 3 to lead a bandhani workshop. The word "bandhani" is derived from the Hindi word "bandhan" which means "tying up." Bhandani is a very fine method of tie and dye, a dye resist process. Bandhani tie and dyeing transforms smooth textiles into multi-colored, nubby, stretchy fabric. If washed, the fabric relaxes to reveal polka dot patterns.
Khatri is a designer and master dyer whose family has been engaged in design, tying, and dyeing of bandhani textiles for many generations. His work has been recognized by UNESCO with its Seal of Excellence for Handicrafts Award, both in 2006 and 2007.
Learn this traditional technique from a master, take away an incredible skill, and meet an accomplished designer from India.
Cost: 2 day workshop with materials, $120
