Shibori is the ancient Japanese art of folding cloth to form a resist. In this shibori workshop you will learn how to fold, clamp, tie or sew material to form a pattern before dyeing in indigo. You will learn how to create an indigo vat and watch the magic of the dye turning from green to blue. There will be plenty of time to explore different techniques before designing your own silk or cotton scarf to take home.
Taught in my rural studio with wonderful views of the North Devon coast. I learnt my skills in Malaysia and added to them with attending workshops over the years. I sell my paintings, scarves and household linens at craft fair and in exhibitions.
