Nabori Silk Dyeing!

Join us live for a series of classes to create gorgeous hand dyed fabrics and scarves.  Created in the style of Shibori, Nabori is my own way of creating amazing works of art with a series of binding, tying, folding and then dyeing.   This is one of the most popular classes offered by Redding Method and is a hit with students all over the country.

“Nabori was a BLAST! I’ve never taken a class like it.  I’m a knitter and a quilter and I can see ways to incorporate my dyed silk into all aspects of my fiber arts.  I love the way Natalie teaches and I’ve never learned so much.  THANK YOU!” Gail; Stitches 2018

There are 3 total classes and the syllabus can be seen below. Class times and days will also be there. This is a great class where you can learn to create your own intricate fabrics.  You’ll create works of art you never knew possible. See the photo carousel below to check out some of the prints created in the style of Nabori. While classes are taught live, they are automatically recorded and will be available to watch for ONLY one week after the final class is completed (at which time they will be automatically deleted.  To enroll, please go to the Enroll page and scroll down until you see the Nabori section.

What Our Students Are Saying

I want to say THANK YOU Natalie ! You have already spurred me to learn something I haven’t succeeded in learning my self during all the years I have been dyeing wool: Namely to really repeat my dyeing. Ulrika
