There is an optional homework assignment and a supply list that will be sent by e-mail once you have registered.

Location:       Susie Krage’s Studio – 1731 Seminole St, Detroit, 48214

 Instructor:    Mary Valerie Richter

Pole Wrap or Arashi Shibori is a Japanese fabric dyeing technique that creates a pattern that resembles driving rain; the word Arashi means “storm” in Japanese. The patterning can appear architectural or organic depending on how the fabric is manipulated around the pole.  Beautiful colors and textural surprises are revealed as the poles are unwrapped.

This hands-on workshop will cover many pole-wrapping techniques.  We will use small cotton pieces of cloth (think fat quarters), and fiber reactive dyes in immersion baths.  Please note: This is not an opportunity to make personal yardage.  Supply list will be sent upon enrollment.

 To sign up:    Please send your check for $50 to Susie Krage.  There will be no refunds after the sign-up deadline of August 31st.  If you are unable to attend, you may find a substitute. (Note: $10 has been added to the workshop fee to help fund future SDA Michigan expenses and exhibition costs.)  No one will be considered enrolled until their check has arrived.

Make checks out to Susie Krage with "Arashi Workshop" in the memo line.  Include your e-mail address and telephone number with your payment. Send to: Susie Krage, 1731 Seminole St., Detroit, MI  48214
