About the Course
There is something magical about the combination of Indigo dye and Shibori techniques. In this workshop you will create your own indigo hand dyed fabric by stitching, wrapping and pleating the fabric.
This workshop will be of interest to all those who love working with textiles. During this workshop we will cover the different methods of preparing the fabric for dyeing, including traditional Japanese techniques and more random methods. You will learn how to make up the Indigo bath and how to maintain it so that you get the most from it. You will be taught through demonstration, group discussion and handouts that will be provided.
