***THIS IS OUR FIRST WORKSHOP AT OUR ROASTERY AT THE TOP OF HUALALAI ROAD***
Shibori is a Japanese art form and dyeing technique that involves folding, twisting, and bunching, tying and dyeing the cloth in a vat of indigo. Here on Hawai’i Island indigo is an invasive species, and Waiho’olu’u has found the most beautiful way to harvest and use this invasive species and dye clothes without any harsh chemicals.
Waiho'olu'u Ola is a Living color dyery that is a creative collective started by a wife and husband duo. Wai'ala "the artist" and Justin "the alchemist" who work together to share the magic of natural color dyes. Working from start to finish on many of their dyes; wildcrafting, harvesting and sourcing plants from local farmers, growing dyes from seed, processing dyes, fermenting, and maintaining vats to co-create traditional and modern resistance designs and pattern making. Outside the joy of sharing the alchemy of natural dye in workshops, the two love sharing their love for the nature and the natural plant world through the process of consciously creating: weaving art, alchemy, sustainability, and nature.
Join us at our new ROASTERY at the top of Hualalai Road for this amazing hands workshop. Each participant will also be allowed 3 personal garments to dip n dye. Spaces are limited, get your tickets today!
