SHIBORI DYEING BEGINNER WORKSHOP

Shibori originated in Japan and is a manual resist dyeing technique.  The technique of Shibori dyeing allows you to create free-form patterns or structured lines, stripes, circles etc. No longer is it just rubber bands and string!

This form of dyeing differs from the typical tie dye process with the use of resist materials including shapes made from perspex, wood, rocks, coins and the list goes on.  The use of plumbers poly pipe where your fabric is wrapped a certain way or perhaps designs stitched in prior to dipping your creations in a vat of Indigo is just a couple of the available options.

You don’t need any artistic skill or prior knowledge of fabrics or dyeing…it’s a learned technique and more importantly an awesome day of fun and creativity.

We invite you to join us on this event, all materials are provided. You will complete 4 sample Shibori pieces of your own choice and also a beautiful silk scarf.

If you have a pre-loved garment or a piece of fabric  (no larger than a sheet)  you are also welcome to bring this along, and time permitting we will show you how to create stunning Shibori designs that you can add to your wardrobe or make into wall hangings, designer cushion covers, framed artworks…the possibilities are endless..

Please note: Shibori requires natural fabrics e.g. Cotton, Silk, Hemp and linen
