NEW – Shibori Dyeing – Sunday 16th January

January 16, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

- £80

Explore ways of dyeing natural fabric using Shibori methods in this hands on workshop.

Shibori is a Japanese manual resist dyeing technique, which produces patterns on fabric.

In Japan, the earliest known example of cloth dyed with a shibori technique dates from the 8th century and the main dye used is Indigo.

Using various Shibori techniques such as Honeycomb Shibori, Ori – Nui (running stitched) Shibori, Arashi (pole-wrapped) Shibori and Itajime (folded & clamped) Shibori you will create a good range of Indigo Dyed samples.

You will need:

White Natural Fabrics such as Cotton, Viscose, Cotton Voile, Linen, Muslin – these can be purchased on the day according to your wishes or please feel free to bring them with you. An old 100% cotton sheet will also work if you’d like to recycle!

Our tutor Liz will bring some silk scarves for you to purchase from her separately (£10 each) should you like to experiment with silk too.

We will provide everything else you need: Shibori Needles, thread, rubber gloves, marking pen, masking tape, string, rubber bands

Even though it’s a Sunday – please don’t wear your Sunday best!! Please bring an apron or old shirt to protect your clothes from dye splashes.

Refreshments and Hearty Vegetable Soup lunch included
