About the Event

In this small group workshop we will explore Japanese shibori techniques using indigo dye. Shibori dyeing is a way of making patterns on fabric by exposing only some portions of the fabric to dye. Tie, pinch, fold, concertina, clamp and stitch your fabric then dye it. 

This workshop is a great opportunity to enjoy handmade processes and have fun learning how to continue these traditional crafts.

Price includes

Five hour face to face workshop

Feel free to bring any smallish cotton objects that you want to dye.
