Be inspired by this amazing indigo dye process and produce your own Shibori dyed homewares in this full day workshop with a wonderful long table lunch.

Shibori is the art of folding, binding, clamping and knotting to compress fabric creating a resist. Learn how to prepare a dye vat and some basic Itajame and Arashi Shibori techniques. In the morning session the group will experiment with test pieces (big enough to make into a cushion when finished) and then create finished pieces for their table setting at home.

In the afternoon participants will apply these skills and techniques to a piece of natural fibre fabric or clothing they’ve brought from home, i.e. old sheets or napery.

Each participant will take home a Shibori dyed linen table runner, or a set of 4 linen napkins or a silk/cotton scarf as well as their own up-cycled pieces.

All tools, materials and long table lunch will be provided.

Please bring:

Each participant may bring 3-4 pieces that they want to up-cycle. Wear comfortable, non-precious clothes and shoes and please bring an apron if you have one.

Date and time:

Sunday the 26th March, 10:00am - 4:00pm
